deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 25, 2020

The discourse of the environment permeates attitudes towards the present, representations of the past and perceptions of the future.

How do languages, literatures and other modes of meaning-making promote ecocritical frameworks that interrogateWestern and Eastern anthropocentric assumptions, biases and expectations?

How do the environmental humanities test new hermeneutic tools to assess the interdependence between natural and anthropic ecosystems? 

Our focus is onnew narratives of fragile and resilient environments; the im/material wellbeing of the organisms that live in them; the interconnections between diverse forms of life.

Shakespeare and the Jews: A Global Exploration (Special Issue of 'Shakespeare')

updated: 
Wednesday, January 22, 2020 - 10:25am
Sabine Schuelting / Freie Universitaet Berlin, Germany
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 15, 2021

In 1992, James Shapiro discussed ‘Shakespeare and the Jews’ in the James Parkes Lecture at the University of Southampton, a lecture that would form one of the cornerstones of his ground-breaking book of the same title. Thirty years later, in 2022, the journal Shakespeare pays homage to his research, both by looking back and reflecting on the issues Shapiro raised, and by looking around us in today’s world where the topic is as relevant as ever. Shakespeare and the accusation of anti-Semitism have long been intertwined, with The Merchant of Venice being central in this discourse. Today, the evidence of rising anti-Semitism has become almost impossible to ignore.
