About the Journal
Borrowers and Lenders: The Journal of Shakespeare and Appropriation is a peer-reviewed, online, multimedia journal that welcomes original scholarship engaging with the afterlives of Shakespearean texts and their literary, filmic, multimedia, and critical histories. It encourages contributors to use the online format to its best advantage, in particular, by imagining how to enhance or illustrate their essays with multimedia. B&L won the CELJ's "Best New Journal" Award in 2007. B&L is fully indexed in the MLA Bibliography, the World Shakespeare Bibliography, and other databases. B&L is currently co-edited by Dr. Sujata Iyengar, Dr. Matt Kozusko, and Dr. Louise Geddes; correspondence should be submitted through the OJS3 interface or via email addressed to Managing Editor Dr. Sarah Mayo.
