Edited Collection: Science Fiction and Shakespeare

Tuesday, November 5, 2019 - 4:13pm
Jeffrey Pietruszynski
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, January 15, 2020

We are seeking contributions from scholars in various disciplines to submit proposals for chapters to be combined into an edited collection on Shakespeare’s influences on modern day science fiction.

Shakespeare’s influence on literary genres is profound to say the least, however, for some people, the association with modernity and popular culture often blinds the reader from any connection to Shakespeare and the English Early Modern Period. Evidence from science fiction belies this position as Shakespeare in both physical and textual form is a regular fixture on the screen. A well-known example comes from the 2007 Doctor Who episode “The Shakespeare Code” where the Doctor refers to him as “the most human human there’s ever been.”
