Borrowers and Lenders: The Journal of Shakespeare and Appropriation

Borrowers & Lenders, The Journal of Shakespeare and Appropriation, is soliciting contributions to its "Appropriations in Performance" section. B&L is a peer-reviewed, online, multimedia scholarly journal and winner of the CELJ's "Best New Journal" award for 2007. We publish two issues each year. In addition to the main section, which features articles and article clusters, we regularly run three dedicated sections: Appropriations in Performance, Digital Appropriations, and Book Reviews.

For the "Appropriations in Performance" section, we prefer thesis-driven reviews focused on arguments and observations over more traditional, archival reviews geared primarily to making descriptive or evaluative records.
