Subject: EMLS 4.3 (January) now available
Early Modern Literary Studies is pleased to announce the launch of the
delayed January issue, which is currently available at the journal's new
site at http://www.shu.ac.uk/emls/emlshome.html and will soon also
appear at the perpetual url, http://purl.oclc.org/emls/emlshome.html.
The May issue will follow shortly.
We are also pleased to announce a new feature, Dialogues. Its purpose is
to foster and foreground scholarly interaction, taking advantage of the
internet's potential for timely interchange. In the feature, three or
four scholars will be invited to address a critical issue of broad
interest to scholars of early modern English literature. These papers
will be posted in the journal, and the discussion will be opened to the
general readership (the writers of the position papers will be
encouraged to continue their participation). Comments from readers will
be moderated and posted allowing readers to respond to ideas at their
convenience; responses are welcomed that range from one or two sentences
to short essays. Each Dialogue will be closed to further discussion
when, in the editors' estimation, there has been satisfactory
opportunity for the full expression of the various points-of-view of the
readership. At this time, the authors of the initial papers and selected
writers of significant contributions will be invited to develop their
pieces into full articles, which will then be published in the refereed
section of the journal as a special issue. As well, the discussion
itself will be archived for easy reference.
Our first Dialogue, on the construction of histories of the early modern
subject, features papers by Douglas Bruster, Jonathan Hart, and Linda
Woodbridge. It is available at the Sheffield site and also at:
We hope that you will join us in discussing this topic. Participation
guidelines are available at the site.
