international databases. We publish articles written in English, French, Spanish.

Papers that focus on Renaissance epic poetry and/or transnational issues are especially welcome.

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.

Possible topics might include but are not limited to instances of illicit collaboration, such as collusion, unlawful gatherings, or plagiarism; social networks or inventories that permit discoveries and inventions; co-creation in the visual or plastic arts; notions of join participation or koinonia in the Reformation; cooperation or co-opetition on the Renaissance stage; customs, practices or civilities of guilds and confraternities; and the tension between individualism and the collective. Papers are welcome from any discipline.
