Digital Shakespeares: Innovations, Interventions, Mediations
A Special Issue of The Shakespearean International Yearbook
Edited by Hugh Craig and Brett D. Hirsch

If data is "the next big idea in language, history and the arts", as
Patricia Cohen has suggested, where are we now in Shakespeare studies?
Are we being "digital" yet?

The guest editors of this special issue of The Shakespearean
International Yearbook invite papers to critically explore digital
innovations, interventions, and mediations in Shakespeare studies, in
particular, the application of digital technologies and methodologies
-- such as computational stylistics, data mining and visualization, 3D
virtual modelling, electronic publishing, etc. -- and their impact on
Shakespeare research, performance, and pedagogy.

Papers theorizing "digital", "networked", or "new media" Shakespeares,
as well as papers interrogating the ways in which the digital
influences the performance of Shakespeare on both stage and screen,
are also welcomed.

Abstracts of c.200 words should be emailed to Hugh Craig
<hugh.craig at newcastle.edu.au> and Brett D. Hirsch
<brett.hirsch at uwa.edu.au> by 10 April 2012. Full articles of accepted
abstracts will be expected by August 2012 to allow for review,
revision, and publication in 2013.
