Subject: Shakespeare and Europe: History - Performance - Memory
With "Shakespeare and Europe" on the agenda of the International Summer
Conference in Stratford, now in session, and the ESSE meeting coming up soon in
Aarhus coming up soon, I would like to draw your attention to "Shakespeare and
Europe: History - Performance - Memory", volume 4 of _Multicultural Shakespeare:
Translation, Appropriation and Performance_, published by the University of Lodz
Press (ISBN 978-83-7527-106-7). The general editors, Yoshiko Kawachy of Kyorin
University and Krystyna Kujawinska Courtney of the University of Lodz, see their
journal as "an intellectual vehicle dedicated to responding to the needs of a
strikingly heterogeneous Shakespeare and to a multicultural community that can
accommodate both the localizing postmodern interpretations and the globalizing
historical studies of translation, appropriation and performance."
"Shakespeare and Europe: History - Performance - Memory" contains a selection of
the papers presented at the seminar "Performance as History," which I conducted
at the conference on "Shakespeare in Europe: Shakespeare and History" held in
Cracow in November 2005 and which I have guest edited for this special issue.
The authors represent a cross-section of European, British, and American
Shakespeare scholarship. Likewise, their papers contextualize a broad
cross-section of 20th century Shakespeare performance in Eastern, Central, and
Western Europe as well as the role of "Europe" in two selected performances in
the United States.
