Subject: SBReviews Call for Reviewers
Thank you for the kind welcome. I continue to be excited about the SBReview Panel and look
forward to sharing its work with the SHAKSPER community.
We are aiming for a big push here at the start of 2011 and are looking for well-credentialed
reviewers of the following titles:
Paul Menzer's _The Hamlets: Cues, Qs, and Remembered Texts_ (Delaware 2009)
Scott and Stapleton's _Christopher Marlowe the Craftsman_ (Ashgate, 2010)
Madhavi Menon's _Unhistorical Shakespeare_ (Palgrave Macmillan, 2008)
Hugh Grady's _Shakespeare and Impure Aesthetics_ (CUP, 2009)
John Drakakis's 3rd ed. of _The Merchant of Venice_ (Arden Shakespeare, 2010)
_Coriolanus_: Third Series (Arden Shakespeare) [Paperback] William Shakespeare. Peter Holland
(Editor). To be released Feb 1, 2011.
A note from the SBReview Panel on Coriolanus:
It would be interesting to discover what new discoveries / approaches could warrant a(nother)
new Coriolanus. Without micro-managing our reviewers, I wonder if we might ask for at least
part of the review to assess the value of such an edition.
If you are interested in reviewing one of these titles for our April 1 or August 1 intake
dates, please let Hardy know, or contact me directly.
[Editor's Note: What Jeremy did not mention is that there are a number of titles for which
the Panel has already chosen reviewers and those reviews are currently being written. It is
also important to mention that ALL reviewers and reviews are vetted by the SBReviews Panel.
Because the SBReviews Panel of distinguished scholars and theatre practitioners oversee all
activities of the SBReviews, I consider that reviews in this project have formal publication
status. This project was one of three ideas that I came up with when I decided actively to
regain the original academic focus of SHAKSPER; the other two were the Roundtable and Cook's
Tour. I have every expectation that the current medical procedures and undertakings I am
engaged with (including detoxification after six years of taking significantly large doses of
narcotics) are going to be providing me significant reduction if not elimination of my
chronic pain issues and an increase in my level of energy and focus, all of which should be
resulting in my more active pursuit of SHAKSPER related activities in the future. -Hardy]
