Subject:      UPDATE: Style Issue on Intentions Collaboration

Beginning in April 2008, SHAKSPER and the journal STYLE participated in a 
collaborative venture. SHAKSPER conducted its second Roundtable discussion on 
the subject of Shakespeare's Intentions with Cary DiPietro of the 
University of Toronto Mississauga acting as moderator.

After the Roundtable concluded, Cary edited the essays that developed out of 
that Roundtable into print format for a special issue of Style, a journal hosted 
by the Department of English at Northern Illinois University: 

The proofs of that issue (Volume 44.3) are currently being reviewed with 
publication set for late October. At that time, I will provide information about 
obtaining a copy of that special issue. 

My own essay, "SHAKSPER Roundtable on Intentions: The Origins of the 
Collaboration with Style" will, in the spirit of collaboration, appear in a 
shorter form in the journal and in a longer, expanded form on the SHAKSPER 
server for downloading. 
After broadly tracing the evolution of the academic uses of the Internet by 
Shakespeareans, my article examines the issues that lead to the establishing of 
the SHAKSPER Roundtable and then traces the events surrounding the collaborative 
experiment between SHAKSPER and Style that evolved from the online SHAKSPER 
"Intentions" discussions to the essays of the special print issue of the Style 

As a sort of postscript, let me add that we have not had a Roundtable discussion 
since. Anyone with an idea for a Roundtable on an issue relevant to current 
Shakespearean or Early Modern scholarship should contact me, particularly if you 
are interested in editing/moderating that discussion. I believe that Cary 
DiPietro and I developed during the Intentions Roundtable a good model 
for future Roundtables with the daily exchanges and the weekly digest 
with the Editor's commentary. I also found DiPietro's solicited 
leading essays extremely helpful.
