Dear Colleagues:

The Editors of _Borrowers and Lenders: The Journal of Shakespeare and
Appropriation_ are delighted to announce the release of Issue 1.2
(Fall/Winter 2005), our first general issue, at www.borrowers.uga.edu.

This issue includes essays by Graham Holderness on scientific
metaphors of appropriation; Thomas Cartelli and Katherine Rowe on
_The King is Alive_; Daniel Gil on the visual grammar of sexuality in
Orson Welles's Shakespeare films; Alexander Huang on historicism,
presentism, and a Sino-Soviet _Much Ado About Nothing_, and Sarah
Hatchuel on "The Gift or Denial of Sight in Screen Adaptations of
Shakespeare's _Macbeth_," among others. Issue 1.2 also includes
reviews of appropriations in performance and recent critical books on
Shakespeare and Appropriation.

Issue 2.1 (Spring 2006) will be a special issue, Shakespeare for
Children. We have extended the due date for issue 2.1 (special issue:
Shakespeare for Children) and welcome submissions as soon as possible.

Currently we solicit essays, book reviews, accounts of Appropriation
in Performance, essay-clusters, and new discoveries for upcoming
general and special issues. General issues appear in the Fall, and
Special issues in the Spring. Future special issues include
Shakespeare for Children (2006), Canadian Shakespeares (2007,
guest-editor Daniel Fischlin), and Shakespeare and Opera. We welcome
suggestions for themes for special issues or for essay-clusters
(groups of two or more essays on a related concern or text).

Contributors interested in writing for our guest-edited special
issue, Canadian Shakespeares, should contact the guest-editor, Daniel
Fischlin, at <dfischli_at_uoguelph.ca> with queries and should send
completed essays by December 31, 2006, to the guest-editor and
general editors.

We also encourage submissions for our next general issue (2.2). We
accept submissions for general issues year-round, but recommend that
contributors interested in publishing in issue 2.2 send us their
manuscripts no later than July 31, 2006.

Please address general inquiries to the General Editors, Christy
Desmet and Sujata Iyengar, by email at borrowers_at_english.uga.edu or
