Call for Submissions: Global Macbeth

Global Macbeth

This collection of essays seeks to explore the many exciting new directions surrounding the scholarship concerning Macbeth. Long associated with the Gunpowder Plot of 1605, Macbeth continues to fascinate multifarious cultures around the globe. Macbeth’s weird witches and fantastic apparitions are inescapable whenever one watches this play. This particular collection is especially interested in abstracts that concern film, stage, and scholarly treatments of the play in Eastern European countries, Russia and Ukraine, China, Japan, India, Africa, and South America. Possible topics for papers may include the following, but are by no means delimited by them:

  • Productions of Macbeth, Past and Present on Stage
  • Films, Adaptations, and Appropriations of Macbeth in the Global Arena
  • Issues of National Identity, Race, and Ethnicity in Macbeth
  • The meanings and representations of the Witches in Macbeth
  • The Problematics of Pedagogy, Macbeth, and the Undergraduate Classroom
  • Homosociality and Queer Affiliations in Macbeth
  • The Cultural Function of Witchcraft and Fortune Telling in Macbeth
  • The Green World: Macbeth and Eco-criticism
  • The Digital, Textual, and Editorial History of Macbeth
