Approaches sought include anachronism, narrative disjunction, radical or extreme subject matter, and irreverence toward source material.

Disciplines might include adaptation studies, literature, 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). Website: (
