New Book Series: Shakespeare and the Stage

Fairleigh Dickinson University Press has established a new Series on Shakespeare and the Stage, devoted to the publication of scholarly works on the theatrical dimensions of the plays of Shakespeare and his contemporaries. Both individual studies and collections of previously unpublished essays are welcome.

The Series Editors are Peter Kanelos, Valparaiso University ( and Matthew Kozusko, Ursinus College ( Proposals should be addressed directly to the editors.

Shakespeare and the Stage works across the boundaries that have traditionally structured academic accounts of Shakespeare and performance. The series features both praxis-oriented and theoretical approaches to early modern drama in performance, and the editors encourage submissions treating the broad arc and legacy of Shakespeare, the critical reception of Shakespearean productions, and the afterlife of Shakespeare in the theater. The editors are soliciting proposals and manuscripts in the following areas:

§ Early Modern theatrical practice
§ Shakespearean performance history
§ Shakespearean adaptations and appropriations
§ Stage-centered Shakespearean criticism

The first volume in the series, to appear in 2013, is Shakespeare Expressed: Page, Stage, and Classroom in Shakespeare and His Colleagues, edited by Kathryn M. Moncrief, Kathryn R. McPherson, and Sarah Enloe.

Fairleigh Dickinson University Press, with editorial offices in Madison, New Jersey, is a co-publishing partner of The Rowman & Littlefield Publishing Group, Lanham, MD. For further information, contact the press Director, Harry Keyishian, at
