Dear Friends and Colleagues,
I am seeking chapter abstracts for a proposed volume on Shakespeare in popular culture. The tentative title for this project is Shakespearean Echoes: Shakespeare in Contemporary Culture.
Why another volume on Shakespeare and popular culture? Understandably, the vast majority of work on Shakespeare's contemporary life has focused on direct adaptations of the playwright's work. What I propose with this volume, however, is to exclusively study "echoes" of Shakespeare rather than adaptations, the less tangible and precise ways in which Shakespeare has appeared within contemporary culture. Authors might address echoes of Shakespeare in contemporary music, film, literature, television, advertising, new media or any other worthwhile venue.
"Savagism" and Civilization
"In plain truth, these men are very savage in comparison of us; of necessity, they must either be absolutely so or else we are savages; for there is a vast difference between their manners and ours." - Michel Montaigne, "Of Cannibals"
