CFP: Shakespeare and the Cultures of Childhood, 1807-2007 (1/31/06; journal issue)

updated: 
Wednesday, December 21, 2005 - 7:05pm
full name / name of organization: 
Kate Chedgzoy

2007 sees the two-hundredth anniversary of the first publication of two
books that have played distinctively significant roles in the mediation
of Shakespeare for children, and the reception of his works by them:
Charles and Mary Lamb's Tales from Shakespeare, and Henrietta Bowdler's
The Family Shakespeare (revised by her brother Thomas a decade later).
As guest-editors of a cluster of essays in the December 2006 issue of
the new Routledge journal Shakespeare, we wish to take this anniversary
as an opportunity to reflect on some of the meanings and consequences of
Shakespeare's global travels through the cultures of childhood over the
last two hundred years.
