Submission guidelines for authors
In the year of the four hundredth anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare (1616-2016), the first issue of the journal Costellazioni will be devoted to Shakespearean drama, considered from a particular perspective that aims to analyze the role and function of the object in the texts, in stagings and in the critical reception of the works of the Elizabethan playwright.

In order to encourage the next generation of academics, interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed e-journal GenderForum (http://www.genderforum.org/) has launched its first annual Early Career Researchers Issue in October 2013. Now every October will see an issue that spotlights the work of emerging researchers.
Contributions can be new academic writing composed specifically for this issue, or exceptional, previously unpublished term papers on all topics pertaining to Gender Studies, Feminist Studies, Masculinity Studies, and/or Queer Theory.
Ever since the momentous success of Ang Lee's western-drama Brokeback Mountain, queer film has increasingly reached the mainstream. Brokeback Mountain was followed by a considerable amount of Hollywood productions that focused on representations of queer issues and characters such as Milk, A Single Man, The Imitation Game and, as the youngest addition to the list, Stonewall. The latter is directed by Roland Emmerich, a filmmaker who is usually known for blockbusters like Independence Day. The fact that both star directors and casts have entered the production of critically and commercially successful queer film-making is indicative of its mainstream potential and a growing target audience.

* Daily performance of gender and the role of impersonation and fantasy
* Gendered visual and material cultures: From the theatrical stage to the silver screen
