In conjunction with the theme of the 2006 issue of the Shakespeare
Yearbook, "Shakespeare in China" (co-edited with Lingui Yang), the
journal will sponsor a special session at the upcoming Annual Meeting
of the MLA (Philadelphia, December 27-30, 2004).

For both the MLA Session and the concomitant issue of the Shakespeare
Yearbook we welcome proposals for papers on any aspect of the
reception of Shakespeare in China-scholarship, teaching, translation,
performance, publication, adaptation, and reception history.
Contributions are expected to shed light on how Shakespeare has been
received and adapted in Chinese culture. They may also focus on the
ways in which the reception of Shakespeare in China has differed from
its reception in other countries. Moreover, it is hoped that this
MLA session/SY Issue will provide a forum for the exchange of ideas
between Shakespeare scholars in China and other countries.

with a brief scholarly bio by April 4, 2004 to Douglas A. Brooks
