Subject: 	Call for Papers: Journal of Shakespeare and Appropriation

The Editors of _Borrowers and Lenders: The Journal of Shakespeare and 
Appropriation_, a new, peer-reviewed, multi-media, online Shakespeare 
journal, are delighted to announce the release of Issue 1.2 (Fall/Winter 
2005), our first general issue, at www.borrowers.uga.edu.

This issue includes essays by Graham Holderness on scientific metaphors 
of appropriation; Thomas Cartelli and Katherine Rowe on _The King is 
Alive_; Daniel Gil on the visual grammar of sexuality in Orson Welles's 
Shakespeare films; Alexander Huang on historicism, presentism, and a 
Sino-Soviet _Much Ado About Nothing_, and Sarah Hatchuel on "The Gift or 
Denial of Sight in Screen Adaptations of Shakespeare's _Macbeth_," among 
others. Issue 1.2 also includes reviews of appropriations in performance 
and recent critical books on Shakespeare and Appropriation.

Issue 2.1 (Spring 2006) will be a special issue, Shakespeare for 
Children. We have extended the due date for issue 2.1 (special issue: 
Shakespeare for Children) and welcome submissions as soon as possible.

Currently we solicit essays, book reviews, accounts of Appropriation in 
Performance, essay-clusters, and new discoveries for upcoming general 
and special issues. General issues appear in the Fall, and Special 
issues in the Spring. Future special issues include Shakespeare for 
Children (2006), Canadian Shakespeares (2007, guest-editor Daniel 
Fischlin), and Shakespeare and Opera. We welcome suggestions for themes 
for special issues or for essay-clusters (groups of two or more essays 
on a related concern or text).

Contributors interested in writing for our guest-edited special issue, 
Canadian Shakespeares, should contact the guest-editor, Daniel Fischlin, 
at <

by December 31, 2006, to the guest-editor and general editors.

accept submissions for general issues year-round, but recommend that 
contributors interested in publishing in issue 2.2 send us their 
manuscripts no later than July 31, 2006.
