Call for papers: Shakespeare: explorations over time and across disciplines

Wednesday, February 03, 2016   (0 Comments)

This year marks the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death in Stratford-upon-Avon. To commemorate this landmark, Palgrave Communications will publish a series of articles exploring developments and fresh perspectives in Shakespearean criticism, historical and textual research, and drama studies. The collection is intentionally multidisciplinary in scope, with contributions from a broad range of scholarly perspectives welcomed, including—but not limited to—research in the following fields: language and literature, history, performance and theatre studies. Submissions are solicited that illuminate academic thinking about Shakespeare, his writings, the social and political contexts that shaped him, as well the enduring cultural (and other) influences of his creative achievements to the present day. Proposals for three article types are invited: Comments (3000 words maximum), Research Articles and Reviews (8000 words maximum). Manuscripts should be submitted by autumn 2016 at the latest.
