The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 15.0746 Thursday, 25 March 2004
Date: Monday, 22 Mar 2004 07:42:46 -0600
Subject: CFP: Shakespeare in China (3/30/04; MLA12/27-30/'04) (Journal
In conjunction with the theme of the 2006 issue of the Shakespeare
Yearbook, "Shakespeare in China" (co-edited with Lingui Yang), the
journal will sponsor a special session at the upcoming Annual Meeting of
the MLA (Philadelphia, December 27-30, 2004).
For both the MLA Session and the concomitant issue of the Shakespeare
Yearbook we welcome proposals for papers on any aspect of the reception
of Shakespeare in China-scholarship, teaching, translation, performance,
publication, adaptation, and reception history. Contributions are
expected to shed light on how Shakespeare has been received and adapted
in Chinese culture. They may also focus on the ways in which the
reception of Shakespeare in China has differed from its reception in
other countries. Moreover, it is hoped that this MLA session/SY Issue
will provide a forum for the exchange of ideas between Shakespeare
scholars in China and other countries.
Please submit title and 250 word of abstract of proposed paper along
with a brief scholarly bio by March 30, 2004 to Douglas A. Brooks
Text Format or Microsoft Word are preferred. Proposed papers must not
exceed eight double-spaced pages in Times New Roman 12 point.
Those prospective contributors who are unable to attend MLA, but wish to
propose essays for the issue of Shakespeare Yearbook should submit
abstracts and brief scholarly bios to Douglas A. Brooks
The Shakespeare Yearbook is a broadly based international annual of
scholarship relating to Shakespeare, his time, and his impact on later
periods. Maximum length for contributions is 35 double-spaced pages in
Times New Roman 12 point. Citations should be formatted according to the
Chicago Manual of Style. The name of the author/s should only appear in
an accompanying cover letter. All essays are reviewed by two readers.
