On Thursday, 26 August 2010, I reported that the special issue of the journal 
STYLE that came about from the collaboration between that journal and the last 
SHAKSPER Roundtable on Shakespeare Intentions was undergoing its final proofing 
and would be ready in late October 
<http://www.shaksper.net/archives/2010/0350.html>.

Then as a postscript, I added that "we have not had a Roundtable discussion  
since" (2008). I then when on, "Anyone with an idea for a Roundtable on an issue 
relevant to current Shakespearean or Early Modern scholarship should contact me, 
particularly if you are interested in editing/moderating that discussion. I 
believe that Cary DiPietro and I developed during the Intentions Roundtable a 
good model for future Roundtables with the daily exchanges and the weekly digest 
with the Editor's commentary. I also found DiPietro's solicited leading essays 
extremely helpful."

I received two responses to my query that I include below. 

I distribute these to stimulate further discussion and suggestions.

The Roundtable format was intended to extend the kinds of discussions that take 
place on SHAKSPER and to introduce topics that are intended to be of a more 
formal nature that the ordinary discourse of the list.

Comment:      Re: SHK 21.0344  UPDATE: Style Issue on Intentions Collaboration

I think it would be splendid to host a discussion on Shakespeare and Access, 
particularly because it seemed to be such a feature of the ISC. Issues might 
involve the role of the Internet and social media in Shakespeare Studies, etc.

I would be interested in moderating, but would perhaps benefit from a co-
moderator, since I am wearing a lot of hats these days.

Dear Professor Cook,
	
We've neglected a vast source of Shakespeare's Psalm allusions, in the Sternhold 
and Hopkins Whole Book of Psalms (WBP). The significant allusions to that 
translation discovered in the past two years already outnumber those compiled by 
Shaheen.
	
Among questions for discussion might be why it took us so long to overcome 
centuries of prejudice against WBP and realize how important it was to 
Shakespeare; what implications his allusions to it have for the reinterpretation 
of his plays and sonnets; and whether his fondness for WBP has implications for 
his religious leanings.
	
Beth Quitslund (Ohio University) published a book two years ago on WBP; she is 
now preparing the first new edition of it in more than a century.	
	
Here are two recent articles from Notes & Queries that give a few examples of 
Shakespeare's allusions to this psalm translation--
