Contributor required for The Year’s Work in English Studies: Shakespeare (General Criticism)

There is a vacancy for a contributor to write the entry on Shakespeare scholarship (General Criticism) in The Year’s Work in English Studies.

YWES is organized by the English Association and published by Oxford University Press.

Contributors write a short narrative description of all the scholarly and critical work in their particular field which a) was published in the calendar year under discussion and b) they think was important. Entries typically run to about 6,000 words, although it’s not about word limits so much as the contributor’s own sense of what is required.

Contributors are able to order review copies of more or less any book which falls within their purview, and it is an excellent way to be on top of the literature in the field.

Expressions of interest together with short academic biographies should be sent to:
