Call for Essays
*Shakespeare Quarterly* is soliciting essays for the winter 1996 issue, a
special issue on "Teaching Judith Shakespeare," to be guest-edited by Elizabeth
H. Hageman and Sara Jayne Steen. Papers should address approaches to and/or
implications of teaching sixteenth- and seventeenth-century English women
writers in conjunction with Shakespeare. Rather than simply providing useful
readings of paired works, teachers might, for example, examine methods of
teaching *The Tragedy of Mariam* with *Othello,* *The Convent of Pleasure* with
*Love's Labor's Lost,* or Wroth's and Philip's poems with Shakespeare's
sonnets; describe how students respond to Portia and Rosalind when
Shakespeare's plays are juxtaposed with the writings of Aemilia Lanyer, Arbella
Stuart, or Rachel Speght; suggest innovative reconfigurations of courses,
treating issues such as language, spirituality, or the pastoral; or explore
entirely new courses that emerge when these women's works join Shakespeare's as
part of our cultural and literary discussions.
Articles should be submitted to both Elizabeth H. Hageman, Department of
English, University of New Hampshire, Durham, NH 03824-3574, and Sara Jayne
Steen, Department of English, Montana State University-Bozeman, Bozeman, MT
59717-0230. The deadline for submissions is 31 October 1995. Inquiries are
welcome and may be directed to either Professor Hageman or Professor Steen.
