Borrowers and Lenders: The Journal of Shakespeare and Appropriation
contact email: 

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.

Fifteen years in, our twenty-first century literary traditions are beginning to take shape, and, indeed, it may be time to bring the poorly-named "contemporary" period to a close after its 70-year reign. Questions remain, however. Have we noticeably shifted into a new literary period? Or, is the defining crisis that will launch a new literary period just on the horizon? The 9-11 Attacks, globalization/neoliberalism, the Anthropocene, the collapse of a post-Cold War détente with the resultant repolarization of world powers and many other cultural shifts may serve as useful markers of an incipient yet-to-be-labeled era.
