Subject: CFP: Shakespeare in Southern Africa
SHAKESPEARE IN SOUTHERN AFRICA
(Journal of the Shakespeare Society of Southern Africa)
Volume 23 (2011)
Editor: Christopher Thurman
Guest Editor: Tony Voss
I write to invite you to contribute to a special issue on:
"Banishment, xenophobia, home and exile in Shakespeare and the Renaissance"
In the light of recent South African experience, the choice of topic
suggests opportunism, but the general theme offers many ways into the
literature and the period, and, if any explicit link were needed,
connects Shakespeare's time with our own. It may be inclusive to the
point of amorphousness, but these are some of the possibilities:
Codes and invented languages
The strange and the stranger
The aim is to invite contributions both from scholars resident in the
country and from South Africans and others living and working abroad.
Please pass this invitation on to anyone you think may be interested,
departmental colleagues or fellow members of professional associations.
Please let me have a proposal before the end of February if you should
consider submitting. Complete papers would need to be with me by the end
of November 2010, for publication of a first special issue in June 2011.
All the best,
