Deadline: 30 June 2010

We especially welcome articles on less known, more radical or experimental Shakespearean re-visions in the fields of cinema, new media and the visual arts. Issues for analysis might include: The old and the new, fixed categories? Is cinema, whose essence was montage for Eisenstein, image-time and image-movement for Deleuze, a new or old medium? / From painting to stage photography and the fragments of footage material from the plays' mises en scène, what is the cultural politics of representing representations of Shakespeare? / The long history of media convergence and intermedial effects: plays within the film, videos within the play, etc. / Between 'deep attention' and 'hyperattention', how do the transformative possibilities of new media affect the way we process Shakespearean texts? / Shakespeare, new media and philosophy. New media and new subjectivities. Intercultural Shakespeare in new media. Shakespeare and diagrammatic knowledge. GIS, mapping and topological Shakespeare.

Articles should be sent to the editors of the issue, A. M. Cimitile ( and K. Rowe (, in compliance with the guidelines of the journal (available in .pdf at
