Subject: 	Reading List for First SHAKSPER Seminar/Forum/Roundtable

Dear SHAKSPEReans,

I am delighted to announce that Hugh Grady Professor of English at 
Arcadia University in Pennsylvania has volunteered to be Guest Moderator 
for the first SHAKSPER Seminar/Forum/Roundtable (official designation to 
follow).

Professor Grady will conduct a session on Historicism and Presentism 
(official title to follow), a subject for which he is imminently 
qualified. His publications in this area include the following:

Grady, Hugh. The Modernist Shakespeare: Critical Texts in a Material 
World. Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1991.

---. Shakespeare's Universal Wolf: Postmodernist Studies in Early Modern 
Reification. New York: Clarendon Press, 1996.

---. Shakespeare and Modernity: Early Modern to Millennium. Accents on 
Shakespeare. London: Routledge, 2000.

---. Shakespeare, Machiavelli, and Montaigne: Power and Subjectivity 
from Richard II to Hamlet. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2002.

---. "Shakespeare Studies, 2005: A Situated Overview," Shakespeare: A 
Journal. 1.1-2 (June and December 2005): 102-20.

--- and Terrence Hawkes eds. Presentist Shakespeares. Accents on 
Shakespeare. London: Routledge, 2007.


Professor Grady recommends the following READING LIST for those wishing 
to participate in the discussion on Historicism and Presentism:

Charnes, Linda. "Introduction: Passing Which Torch?" Hamlet's Heirs: 
Shakespeare and the Politics of a New Millennium. Routledge: London and 
New York, 2006: 1-12.

Fernie, Ewan. "Shakespeare and the Prospect of Presentism." Shakespeare 
Survey 58 (2005): 169-84.

---. "Shakespeare Studies, 2005: A Situated Overview," Shakespeare: A 
Journal. 1.1-2 (June and December 2005): 102-20.  Also available on-line 
at http://journalsonline.tandf.co.uk/link.asp?id=n2017g450h61

--- and Terrence Hawkes eds. Presentist Shakespeares. Accents on 
Shakespeare. London: Routledge, 2007. Introduction (1-5) and perhaps a 
sampling of the collected essays to see the diversity of "presentist" 
approaches.

Hawkes, Terence.  Shakespeare in the Present. London: Routledge, 2002. 
Especially the Introduction.

Rackin, Phyllis. "Misogyny is Everywhere," in Dympna Callaghan (ed.) A 
Feminist Companion to Shakespeare. Alden, Massachusetts: Blackwell, 2000.

Anyone having difficulty obtaining the essays should contact me.

My plan is to follow the procedures that I outlined a few days ago:
