Subject:    Not the Year's Work in English Studies

 

From 2000 to 2016 I wrote the “Shakespeare: Editions and Textual Studies” annual review for the Year’s Work in English Studies published by Oxford University Press. In 2016 I was asked to stand down and so gave up the review, but I continue to attempt to read and evaluate everything published in this field. Since the discipline of formally reviewing scholarship is the best way to make sense of it, I decided to continue writing an annual review and to self-publish it on my website. I am grateful to Ed Pechter for serving as my editor for this new review, saving me from dozens of infelicities and improving the sense in many places. I would be interested to hear from any readers who find this review useful.

 

The review is called Not the Year’s Work in English Studies and it

appears at:

The most recent review is for work published in 2015. My YWES reviews

of scholarship published in previous years are available at:

Lots of exciting things have been happening for the Shakespeare Concerts this month, and hopefully I’ll be able to share more details with you soon. But the most exciting thing right now are our two concerts coming up next weekend!

If you’re not able to come to the concert on Saturday in Boston, then maybe you can catch our second iteration on Sunday in Amherst instead!

Call for Proposals: New Technologies and Renaissance Studies

RSA 2018, 22-24 March, New Orleans

 

Since 2001, the Renaissance Society of America annual meetings have featured panels on the applications of new technology in scholarly research, publishing, and teaching.  Panels at the 2018 meeting will continue to explore the contributions made by new and emerging methodologies and the projects that employ them, both in-person at the conference and online via individual and group virtual presentations.

 

We welcome proposals for in-person and online papers, panels, and or poster / demonstration / workshop presentations on new technologies and their impact on research, teaching, publishing, and beyond, in the context of Renaissance Studies.  Examples of the many areas considered by members of our community can be found in the list of papers presented at the RSA since 2001 (http://bit.ly/1tn6rsd) and in those papers published thus far under the heading of New Technologies and Renaissance Studies (http://bit.ly/1zJiaqp). 

 

Please send proposals before 30 April 2017 to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Your proposal should include a title, a 150-word abstract, and a one-paragraph biographical CV, as well as an indication of whether you would consider or prefer an online presentation. We are pleased to be able to offer travel subventions on a competitive basis to graduate students who present on these panels; those wishing to be considered for a subvention should indicate this in their abstract submission.

 

We thank Iter: Gateway to the Middle Ages & Renaissance (http://www.itergateway.org) for its generous sponsorship of this series and its related travel subventions since 2001.
