The Shakespearean International Yearbook


'In the crowded field of Shakespeare studies The Shakespearean International Yearbook stands out for its distinguished contributions. The range of contributing scholars is worldwide. The members of the editorial board are leaders in their profession. The focus on methodologies and controversies, and on timely topics such as "The Globe, old and new", provides a forum for careful and up-to-date discussions of central issues.'
David Bevington, Phyllis Fay Horton Professor in the Humanities, University of Chicago


The Shakespearean International Yearbook surveys the present state of Shakespeare studies, addressing issues that are fundamental to our interpretive encounter with Shakespeare's work and his time, across the whole spectrum of his literary output. Contributions are solicited from among the most active and insightful scholars in the field, from both hemispheres of the globe. New trends are evaluated from the point of view of established scholarship, and emerging work in the field encouraged, to present a view of what is happening all around the world. Each issue includes a special section under the guidance of a specialist Guest Editor, as well as a production diary or record of a notable Shakespeare performance.

An essential reference tool for scholars of early modern literature and culture, this annual captures, from year to year, current and developing thought in Shakespeare scholarship and theater practice worldwide.


Submission guidelines

We are currently considering proposals for essays for upcoming volumes of The Shakespearean International Yearbook. Contributions from scholars and theatre practitioners outside the Anglo-American sphere are especially solicited.

Proposals should take the form of a preliminary letter of inquiry, briefly describing the proposed essay. Please be sure to include an estimate of length (in words, rather than in pages), and an estimate of the number and type of illustrations to be included, if any.

Please send copies of your proposal to the editors of The Shakespearean International Yearbook at siy@ashgate.com.
