Shakespeare and Sport

Shakespeare is accepting articles that are concerned with any aspect of Shakespeare and sports, athletics, or exercise for the 2011 issue, Shakespeare and Sport. We welcome articles of 6,000 words (including notes) that examine the presence and nature of sport in Shakespeare's works.

We are looking for a wide variety of theoretical and historical approaches to Shakespeare and sport, which could include but is not limited to investigations of Shakespeare's use of sport, physical exercise, sporting events, physical fitness, and competitive games.

Shakespeare is a major peer-reviewed journal, publishing articles drawn from the best of current international scholarship on the most recent developments in Shakespearean criticism. Its principal aim is to bridge the gap between the disciplines of Shakespeare in Performance Studies and Shakespeare in English Literature and Language. The journal builds on the existing aim of the British Shakespeare Association, to exploit the synergies between academics and performers of Shakespeare. Please include a brief bio and 200-word abstract with your electronic submission, all in Word documents (.doc not .docx). Please visit the website at for more specific submission guidelines and to read past issues.

Send submissions to the guest editor: John J. Norton,
