About the Journal:

Borrowers and Lenders: The Journal of Shakespeare and Appropriation, founded in 2005, is a peer-reviewed, online, multimedia Shakespeare journal and winner of the CELJ’s :Best New Journal” Award (2007). We are fully indexed in the World Shakespeare Bibliography, the Modern Language Association Bibliography, and other scholarly databases.

The editors of Borrowers and Lenders: The Journal of Shakespeare and Appropriation welcome original scholarship engaging with the afterlives of Shakespearean texts and their literary, filmic, multimedia, and critical histories. We encourage contributors to use the online format to its best advantage, in particular, by imagining how to enhance or illustrate their essays with multimedia (screen captures, sound clips, images, and so on). General issues appear in the Fall/Winter, and Special issues in the Spring/Summer, although the production schedule can vary. We welcome suggestions for themes for special issues.
