Call for Papers for Edited Collection

Call for Papers

We are seeking essay proposals for an edited volume focused on queens and queenship in the plays of William Shakespeare. Although there have been many individual studies of how queens in early modern drama reflect and refract the image of Elizabeth I, this volume will primarily concern queens as characters and as theatrical constructs. The collection will be submitted to the “Queenship and Power” series (Palgrave Macmillan) edited by Charles Beem and Carole Levin, with planned
publication for late 2017/early 2018.
