Call for Papers: Special Issue of Interdisciplinary Literary Studies:
A Journal of Criticism and Theory
(www.psupress.org/Journals/jnls_ILS.html)

We invite essays from interdisciplinary perspectives that respond (directly or otherwise) to Pascale Aebischer’s “preposterous contemporary Jacobean” in discussion of early modern source texts (not, for this journal issue, limited to the Jacobean era). Examination of the “contemporary Jacobean” in films might include anachronism, narrative disjunction, radical or extreme subject matter, and irreverence toward their early modern source material. Approaches might include adaptation studies, art history, reception history, genre studies, and historical and theoretical approaches to early modern works and the materials and production of adaptations.

Accepted essays will be published in a special issue of the peer-reviewed journal Interdisciplinary Literary Studies (Pennsylvania State University Press).
