Call for Papers

For a special issue of Shakespeare: A Journal marking the 200th anniversary of the birth of Karl Marx, we are inviting submissions of papers related to the issue's central topic of investigating Marx's impact, in a broad sense, on Shakespeare studies, either by exemplifying it in your own way or by commenting directly on it. Reference to the situation in our contemporary world as part of the overall argument would be welcome as well. We are also looking for papers that investigate Shakespeare’s influence on Karl Marx and the development of his writings.

The proposed length for this is 6000 words, and the journal requires double-blind peer evaluation. We expect a strong issue.

MLA, January 2018, New York: Seeking proposals to a non-guaranteed session about kinship terminology or terms of endearment used for friends and foes. For example, in The Song of Roland, characters use sarcasm to describe enemies as friends, and interestingly, demeaning monikers are used to chastise friends. What do these epithets say about the cultural boundaries between friends and enemies in medieval and renaissance literature? Please send 500 word proposal and CV by 20 March 2017 to Pamela Kirkpatrick (kirkpatp@uark.edu ). Also, please email questions or comments. If proposal is accepted, attendant must be an MLA member by 7 April 2017, per MLA guidelines.
