Dr Peter Orford and his editing team have collected articles from the next generation of Shakespeare scholars to offer a glimpse into the future of Renaissance Studies. The essays included were presented at the International British Graduate Shakespeare Conference and represent research from around the globe, either exploring new territory, or redefining the work of those before them. In his foreword, Professor Stanley Wells states that `The essays printed here demonstrate that the future of early modern dramatic scholarship and criticism is in good hands." The articles included are:* "Seldom Seene: Observations from Editing The Launching of the Mary, or the Seaman's Honest Wife" by Matteo Pangallo* "Thomas Heywood and the Construction of Taste in the Repertory of Queen Henrietta's Men" by Eleanor Collins* "Bawdiness, Crime and Low Characters in Late Elizabethan Comedy" by Shelly Hsin-Yi Hsieh * "Print and Elizabethan Military Culture" by Dong-Ha Seo* "Actors, Audiences and Authors: The Competition for Control in Brome's The Antipodes" by Audrey Birkett* "Shakespeare's King Richard III: The Perverted Machiavel" by Conny Loder* "Women in the Shakespearean Audience - Recognition and Authority" by Brian Schneider* "Dis-playing History: The Case of Shakespeare's Globe" by Kelly Jones* "`Ever Holy and Unstained': Illuminating the Feminist Cenci Through Mary Wollstonecraft and Shakespeare's Titus Andronicus" by Kristine Johansan* "Narcissus and Modernity in Shakespeare's Sonnets" by Will McKenzie* "Cowboys and Romans: Cymbeline and Paradigmatic Change in the Theatre" by Miles Gregory

About Peter Orford with Michael P Jones

Peter Orford completed his PhD at the Shakespeare Institute in 2006, having researched the critical and theatrical background of Shakespeare's history plays in order to explore their potential as individual works of drama, rather than chapters in a cycle. He was a contributing editor to Shakespeare I-learner, an interactive web-based product for school children in Hong Kong, and his article `The Significance of Venice in Little Dorrit' was published in the Dickensian in Summer 2007.
