Routledge Annotated Bibliography of English Studies:
Contemporary Literature Section (Drama)

Routledge are proud to announce the launch of the Routledge Annotated
Bibliography of English Studies (ABES), a unique reference tool for those
working in the field of English Literary Studies.

Routledge ABES is a specialised online bibliography providing annotated
entries on all of the most significant research in literary studies
published each year. It contains scholarly annotations on all the best new
criticism, from which users can find out about a publication, how it might
be of use to them, and whether it would be relevant to their work.

The database is organised around eight key sections: Medieval; Renaissance
and Early Modern; Eighteenth Century; Romanticism; Nineteenth Century;
Modernism; Postcolonial; Contemporary Literature.

Routledge are currently inviting applications to contribute to the
Contemporary Literature section. The section includes work on both
established and up-and-coming authors, and covers all the major genres of
contemporary writing, including fiction, poetry, drama, non-fictional
prose, travel writing, literary theory and life writing.

 As a contributor to Routledge ABES you would be called upon to create
annotations to some of the best new research in literary studies, helping
to provide an indispensable guide for the rest of the literary studies
community. Your work would be fully acknowledged, with contributors able
to provide a short biography and a link back to their own website or

Each section is headed by a dedicated section editor, who edits and
oversees the records in that section. If you are interested in becoming a
contributor to Routledge ABES, then please contact the Contemporary
Literature section editor:
