Double-blind peer-reviewed articles that analyze appropriation as a process of collaboration with Shakespeare, and to that end seek work that either demonstrates something new both about Shakespeare and about the field of appropriation or that works with Shakespeare to extend theories of adaptation and appropriation.
Editors will send submissions to reviewers with expertise in both fields on inquiry, for example, to a Shakespearean and a Film Studies scholar; to a Shakespearean and to an Architectural Historian; to a Shakespearean and a Early Americanist; as appropriate.
