Subject:        Book on Stephen Greenblatt

Dear list-members,

As a spin-off of work on my doctoral thesis on the theoretical sources
of Stephen Greenblatt's New Historicism, I am currently preparing a
collection of essays on Greenblatt's work. Some of them have been
presented on a conference at the University of Ghent (Belgium) where
Professor Greenblatt was one of the keynote speakers. Other
contributions included papers on Greenblatt and Certeau, Greenblatt and
Girard, a theoretical expose on Greenblatt's notion of social energy
etc. I am still looking for a number of texts to be included in the
collection, which I hope to finalize somewhere in the spring of next
year. Theoretical contributions will be preferred to practical
applications of NH.

Any list-members having any suggestions can contact me privately at the
following address:

This is a bit "old hat" by now, but I've had an inquiry trying to
identify the best 1-5 sources that summarize the OJ/Othello motif.
There were, of course, various editorials, articles, etc. but I'm
interested to know what SHAKSPERians think were the "top" among this
group.

Thanks in advance for this foray into another part of pop culture (after
you all did so well with Shakespeare in modern music!).
