Shakespeare is a major peer-reviewed journal, publishing articles drawn from the best of current international scholarship on the most recent developments in Shakespearean criticism. Its principal aim is to bridge the gap between the disciplines of Shakespeare in Performance Studies and Shakespeare in English Literature and Language. The journal builds on the existing aim of the British Shakespeare Association, to exploit the synergies between academics and performers of Shakespeare. Please visit the website at http://www.tandf.co.uk/journals/titles/17450918.asp/ for more specific submission guidelines and to read past issues.

Please send abstracts of approximately 200 words to the guest editors: Clare McManus (C.McManus@roehampton.ac.uk) and Lucy Munro (l.munro@engl.keele.ac.uk) by 31 July 2010. Completed essays or reviews will be due by 31 December 2010.
