We are seeking essay proposals for an edited volume focused on queens and queenship in the plays of William Shakespeare. Although there have been many individual studies of how queens in early modern drama reflect and refract the image of Elizabeth I, this volume will primarily concern queens as characters and as theatrical constructs. The collection will be submitted to the "Queenship and Power" series (Palgrave Macmillan) edited by Charles Beem and Carole Levin, with planned publication for late 2017/early 2018.

Excursions Vol 7 No. 1 "Failure"
'A real failure does not need an excuse. It is an end in itself.' - Gertrude Stein, Four in America
English: The Journal of the English Association invites contributions to a special issue on literature, landscape and the environment.
In the years since the publication of seminal texts such as Carson's Silent Spring, and with environmental concerns never more pressing, ecocriticism has become firmly established in literary studies as a way to think about the challenges facing writers and their readers. Moreover, literary critical engagement with the environment has been enriched in recent years through intersectional work with fields as diverse as disability studies, spatial studies, gender theory, and post-humanism.
