Subject: 	CFP: Women on Shakespeare

"No other but a woman's reason"
Women on Shakespeare

CALL  FOR  PAPERS

It is a common practice nowadays to look at various areas of academic activity 
from a gender-specific perspective. However, a publication that would focus on 
often marginalized women, standing in the shadow of Shakespeare's genius and his 
male commentators' fame, as far as we know, has never been ventured. Thus, our 
aim is to illuminate these often neglected, forgotten and seldom appreciated 
women placing them in the spotlight of attention on the international stage.

We are planning to publish a collection of essays devoted to Shakespeare and 
women -- women who made a significant contribution to Shakespearean studies and 
performance as actresses, directors, designers, translators, and scholars.

We expect essays ca 5000 words (or 15 pages), in MLA format, with all the titles 
and references in foreign languages to be translated into English. Illustrations 
and photographs are welcome, but please remember to include copy right waivers 
for any images.

The deadline for proposals is 30 March 2009, however, we would appreciate your 
earlier response concerning your contribution and possibly an abstract of your 
essay.

Your suggestions, response, enquiries about contributions should be addressed to
