Shakespeare and the Material World

Early English Studies Journal is an online journal under the auspices of the University of Texas, Arlington English Department and is devoted to literary and cultural topics of study in the medieval and early modern periods. EES is published annually, peer-reviewed, and open to general submission.
Early English Studies Journal is now accepting submission for our next issue, which will be titled, Shakespeare and the Material World. We welcome submissions that deal with any aspect of Shakespeare and material culture. We are interested, for example, in the ways in which materiality informs theatrical practices and is reflected in the plays. How do objects or the idea of an object construct identity and gender or create a sense of space, time, or location? What is the meaning of materiality in the early modern world and the world of Shakespeare’s plays? Submissions (7000-9000 words including notes) are due on March 2, 2011.
Please include a brief bio and 200-word abstract with your electronic submission, all in Word documents. Please visit the website at http://www.uta.edu/english/ees/ for more specific submission guidelines and to read past issues.
In Volume 4, we will also have a new section of book reviews. If you would like to have your book, which has been published in the last two years and concerns medieval or early modern literary and or cultural studies, considered for review, please send an email to Sarah Farrell, Review Editor, sarah.farrell@mavs.uta.edu.
Deadline for Paper: March 2, 2011
