Subject:   SBReviews: Call for Reviewers

Dear SHAKSPER Members,

The members of the SHAKSPER Book Review Panel are issuing their first 
call for reviewers, seeking members of SHAKSPER interested in writing 
reviews for SBReviews, the SHAKSPER Book Review Project.

Below is a list of titles for which we seeking reviewers. We would like 
to match books with reviewers' interests and expertise. We ask that 
anyone interested in reviewing any of these books to send a brief 
message identifying the title and your particular interest in or 
connection with the subject matter of that work, including any recent 
and relevant publications you might have related to the work. The Panel 
also requests that you send a biographical statement of no more than 50 
We are currently looking for 1,000-word reviews. In the future, we will 
consider joint reviews or reviews of multiple, related books (Review 
Essays), in those case the reviews might be longer. Book reviews 
published on SHAKSPER are peer reviewed by the SHAKSPER Book Review Panel.
The SBRP will contact reviewers once Panel members have been matched 
with books with reviewers and will provide, at that time, specific 
deadline and format information.
If a worthy title, particularly one written by a SHAKSPER member, is not 
on the list below, please notify the SBRP at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for 
possible inclusion on future lists. The SBRP seeks books of relevance to 
the broad scope of academic interests of SHAKSPER readers.
We look forward to hearing from you.
