The editor of Critical Insights: Macbeth for Salem Press is seeking proposals for original critical readings of Shakespeare’s Macbeth. All topics and critical methodologies are welcome, particularly those that employ specific theoretical approaches to engage productively with interpretive problems in the text. At least one essay from each of the following subfields is desired for publication: gender studies, queer studies, postcolonialism, transnational studies, book history, cultural history, ecocriticism, film studies, linguistics, and digital humanities.

The primary audience for the Critical Insights series is undergraduates and advanced high school students, so submissions should emphasize clarity and textual engagement.

Please submit a 250-300 word proposal for a 5000 word essay to by 1 May 2017. Accepted contributors will be required to deliver the full essay by 15 June 2017, and will receive a $250 honorarium. Publication scheduled for late summer 2017.
