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.

Copies are available from www.ips.com.pl

With best wishes,
Lawrence Guntner
