Subject: SBReviews: Call for Reviewers
Dear SHAKSPER Members,
The members of the SHAKSPER Book Review Panel are issuing their first
call for reviewers, seeking members of SHAKSPER interested in writing
reviews for SBReviews, the SHAKSPER Book Review Project.
Below is a list of titles for which we seeking reviewers. We would like
to match books with reviewers' interests and expertise. We ask that
anyone interested in reviewing any of these books to send a brief
message identifying the title and your particular interest in or
connection with the subject matter of that work, including any recent
and relevant publications you might have related to the work. The Panel
also requests that you send a biographical statement of no more than 50
We are currently looking for 1,000-word reviews. In the future, we will
consider joint reviews or reviews of multiple, related books (Review
Essays), in those case the reviews might be longer. Book reviews
published on SHAKSPER are peer reviewed by the SHAKSPER Book Review Panel.
The SBRP will contact reviewers once Panel members have been matched
with books with reviewers and will provide, at that time, specific
deadline and format information.
If a worthy title, particularly one written by a SHAKSPER member, is not
possible inclusion on future lists. The SBRP seeks books of relevance to
the broad scope of academic interests of SHAKSPER readers.
We look forward to hearing from you.
