Call for “untimely reviews” in early modern theater

Wednesday, November 7, 2018 - 10:04am
The Hare
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 8, 2018

We invite contributions focusing on early modern theater, including but not limited to Shakespeare’s plays. The Hare is an online, peer-reviewed journal, publishing untimely reviews of books, articles, and performances in early modern theater.

This journal provides a venue for the contention and reevaluation of old scholarly work in contemporary scholarly debate. We invite you to interpret “old” creatively, though traditional reviews of recent publications will not be considered. We welcome:

The theme for the 2019 conference is Theatre, Performance, and Urbanism.
