I am seeking essays for a proposed collection for Routledge, titled "Shakespeare's 'Mortal Living Ghost(s)': Supernatural Appropriations and Afterlives." The collection will take a broad approach to rethinking Shakespeare's use of the supernatural as well as how subsequent authors and artists have interpreted Shakespeare's image and/or works vis-à-vis the supernatural. Interdisciplinary approaches are welcome.

Memories on the Move: Asian Connections
Deadline for Submissions: June 30, 2015
In the last ten years memory studies has experienced a gradual shift towards comparative, interdisciplinary, and border-crossing perspectives. Studies on cosmopolitan memory (Levy and Sznaider), multidirectional memory (Rothberg), transcultural memory (Crownshaw), travelling memory (Erll), or transnational memory (De Chesari and Rigney) highlight the circulatory, competing, overlapping, fluid and dynamic nature of the processes of remembrance and cultural memory.
According to the OED, the word tourism enters the English lexicon at the dawn of the nineteenth century, thus institutionalizing the notion that travel is a necessary component of personal development. As crowds of earnest bourgeois travelers displaced the solitary young aristocrat on the Grand Tour a vast body of literature concerned with both mundane and exalted facets of foreign places cropped up to fulfill a new set of needs. Owing to the diversity of places to which individuals traveled and the many different reasons for doing so, these needs were diverse and multiform.
