Subject: RORD Announcements
As editor of Research Opportunities in Renaissance Drama, I would like
to make a few announcements, not least that we are still accepting
submissions for the 2005 issue (to be published in August), especially
for the Census of Medieval Drama Productions.
Beginning with the 2005 issue, the journal's title will expand to
Research Opportunities in Medieval and Renaissance Drama, reflecting the
equal status medieval drama has had in the journal for some time now, as
well as the journal's link with the Medieval and Renaissance Drama
Society. I hope that you will find this a reasonable action, despite
it's making an already unwieldy title even longer. (I eagerly await the
first attempts to pronounce the new acronym, ROMRD.)
The journal has also licensed EBSCO to make back issues available
electronically by subscription, in a bundle of performing arts journals.
At the same time, EBSCO will continue to support print subscriptions.
It is our hope that this way the journal's readership will increase,
while it remains financially viable as a print journal for the
Reports on productions of medieval and non-Shakespearean Renaissance
drama may still be submitted for the upcoming issue. Reports may be
reviews by audience members, or reports by directors or others involved
in the production, and are most valuable when they focus on the choices
made by directors, designers and performers in putting early dramatic
texts before contemporary audiences. Submissions to the medieval census
of English, CMB 1045, University of Puget Sound, Tacoma, WA 98416 USA.
Submissions to the Renaissance census may be sent to me, or to James
of Birmingham, Church Street, Stratford-upon-Avon, CV37 6HP, UK.
