Dear colleagues,

 

Please consider contributing to the Gale Researcher British Literature series, as described in the call for contributions below:

 

Gale Researcher Query

We are looking for Early Modern and Shakespeare scholars who are interested in contributing to a series of eBooks for Gale, a division of Cengage Learning. We’re currently working to create two ten-volume series of eBooks (targeted at undergrads) on British Literature, both of which contain entries about Shakespeare and other Early Modern writers. Gale is interested in scholars who can write succinctly and clearly for an undergraduate audience. We are looking both for authors to write original essays and to revise essays currently owned by Gale.  Doctoral candidates are welcome, but must be currently affiliated with a college or university.  The deadline for essays is short: they would be due by July 30th, 2016. You would be credited as the author and/or co-author of the essay and there is a modest remuneration. 

If you are interested, please contact Peter Schumacher at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and send him a list of your areas of expertise and a brief (1-2 page) CV.

Subject:    5 British actors walk into a Bard...

 

Now in our 41st year, Actors From The London Stage inspires with the power of Shakespeare. Each weeklong residency brings the Bard to life on the stage and in the classroom. Our British casts – veterans of the most respected theatre companies in the world – tour campuses from Maine to Hawaii with their innovative five-hand staging of Shakespeare’s most beloved works.

 

NOW BOOKING 2017 & 2018

 

UPCOMING TOURS:

 

Fall 2016 - Richard III

Spring 2017 - Romeo and Juliet 

Fall 2017 - Measure for Measure

Spring 2018 - The Taming of the Shrew

 

Visiting colleges and universities sized 400 to 40,000, we work with you to create a residency customized to your unique needs and venues. Our team can help you develop a funding strategy, assist in the coordination of on- and off-campus partnerships, and design a residency that perfectly supports your personal, departmental, and institutional priorities.

 

Explore our tour history, marketing resources, and residency guides at the AFTLS WEBSITE.

Founded in 1975 by Homer “Murph” Swander and world-renowned actor Sir Patrick Stewart, AFTLS is “an actor-driven tour de force.” Our actors hail from such prestigious UK companies as Shakespeare’s Globe, the National Theatre, and the RSC. Uniquely, AFTLS actors not only perform a full-length Shakespearean play, but also visit dozens of classrooms during their weeklong residency.

 

In addition to enlivening theatre and English departments, the AFTLS experience can be tailored to enrich coursework across the academic spectrum. Our dynamic, hands-on approach will heighten each student's intellectual curiosity regardless of discipline. Whether coaching accounting students on successful presentation skills, or instructing law students in the art of persuasion, these workshops promote a campus-wide dialogue inspired by the works of William Shakespeare.

Dr. Holland's acclaimed scholarly editions of the plays include A Midsummer Night's Dream for the Oxford Shakespeare series and Coriolanus for the Arden Shakespeare's third series. His many book-length titles include The Ornament of ActionRethinking British Theatre History, and English Shakespeares: Shakespeare on the English Stage in the 1990s. He has written extensively about Shakespeare in performance, and audiences at London's National Theatre have long enjoyed his lucid program notes for productions under the aegis of artistic director Nicholas Hytner, who studied under Dr. Holland at the University of Cambridge.
