CFP: Special Issue of Interdisciplinary Literary Studies: Contemporary Jacobean Film (deadline: Nov. 1, 2012)

We invite essays from interdisciplinary perspectives that respond (directly or otherwise) to Pascale Aebischer’s discussion of the “preposterous contemporary Jacobean” in discussion of early modern source texts (ca. 1500-1800 – not, for this journal issue, limited to the Jacobean era). Examination of the “contemporary Jacobean” in films might include the use of anachronism, narrative disjunction, radical or extreme subject matter, and irreverence toward their early modern source material. Approaches might include adaptation studies, art history, reception history, genre studies, and historical and theoretical approaches to early modern works and the materials and production of adaptations.

Accepted essays will be published in a special issue of the peer-reviewed journal Interdisciplinary Literary Studies: A Journal of Theory and Criticism (Pennsylvania State University Press).

Please send essays no longer than 7500 words to Elizabeth Kelley Bowman, Northern Illinois University ( The deadline for receipt of essays is November 1, 2012.
