INVITATION

Dear Colleagues,

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
Diaspora
The foreign
Gypsies
Homelessness
Hospitality
Masterless men
Neologism
The outcast
The outlaw
The strange and the stranger
The uncanny
The wanderer

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,
Tony Voss
