Issue of Shakespeare Bulletin at West Georgia
The first issue of Shakespeare Bulletin, an international journal
devoted to scholarship on Shakepearean and Renaissance drama in performance
(including film adaptations of Shakespeare's plays), to be edited
by Andrew Hartley, associate professor of English, makes its appearance
this fall. Featuring a complete "make-over" for the publication in
terms of design and format, this debut UWG issue also offers outstanding
essays on topics as various as connections between Disney's Lion King
and Shakepeare and the ethical and aesthetic implications of a being
a "token" Jewish dramaturg for a production of Merchant of Venice
performed for a predominantly non-Jewish audience.
Kimily Willingham, the publications specialist in the English department,
assisted Dr. Hartley with the production of the journal, and for the
forthcoming spring issue John Sturgis, an instructor in the department,
will begin working on the journal as an assistant editor. Check out
the stunning purple cover with its compelling black-and-white photos.
Then plan to spend some time with the articles and reviews inside.
Dr. Hartley has back issues of the journal in its previous incarnation
for those interested in seeing for themselves how much difference
he's made in just one issue.
