The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 19.0209 Thursday, 10 April 2008
Date: Thursday, April 10, 2008
Subject: Roundtable and Book Review Panel
A lot has been going on behind the scenes with SHAKSPER. Cary DiPietro
with input from John V. Knapp, Editor of STYLE, has put together a
fascinating Reading List for our upcoming Roundtable discussion on
Shakespeare's Intentions. With the Reading List, Cary provided some
thought-provoking ideas about the subject:
I will be accepting reactions to Cary's initial post next week. I will
forward submissions to him over the weekend of April 18, 19, and 20 and
intend to post the first digest in this Roundtable on Monday, April 21,
or Tuesday, April 22. I will include the Reading List at the end of this
I am also pleased to announce that the SHAKSPER Book Review Panel has
been hold discussions and sharing ideas. The Panel will generate a list
of books for review. When the Panel has come up with a half dozen
titles, a Call for Reviewers will be issued on SHAKSPER. Members of the
Panel will then select reviewers from those who express an interest or
will invite persons with special interests in the areas covered in the
book to be reviewed to consider writing a Review for SHAKSPER. Once a
review is completed, the Panel will vet it as peer reviewers. Only then
will a book review be distributed to the members and mounted on the
fileserver in a Book Review Section.
We will provide review copies to the reviewers. In this regard, please
let an presses that you might be associated with know that SHAKSPER is
accepting review copies for consideration to be reviewed on SHAKSPER.
Publishers wishing to have one of their titles considered may send a
review copy to the address below and I will make sure that it is given
to the reviewer if the Panel selects it:
