Call For Submissions: THE HARE
The editors are pleased to announce the creation of a new journal, THE HARE, publishing scholarly essays and reviews pertaining to the dramatic,poetic, and prose works of Shakespeare and his contemporaries. THE HARE will be published three times per year (March, July, and November) beginning in 2012. We are now accepting submissions for Volume 1. THE HARE will be published in an on-line format and hosted by the Mary Baldwin College Shakespeare and Performance Program. The general editors are Paul Menzer (Mary Baldwin College) and Jeremy Lopez (University of Toronto). Send submissions or queries by email to the editors: ,

The Hare solicits short essays on the dramatic, poetic, and prose works of Shakespeare and his contemporaries. The journal also publishes academic book reviews, and provides a public forum for open exchange between scholars in the field.

Article submissions should be approximately 1000 - 3000 words, including all notes and references. Longer submissions will not be considered. The Hare encourages the submission of conference papers, lectures, out-takes, first gestures, and other occasional pieces whose exposition does not require the 7000 - 10000 words and extensive apparatus typical of a scholarly article. By soliciting only short pieces, the Editors hope to encourage the submission of stylistically and interpretively adventurous work that addresses out-of-the-way subjects, non-canonical literature, and/or current scholarly controversy. Essays on familiar, canonical texts& subjects are of course welcome as well. The Hare asserts copyright over all published material but will freely grant permission for future publication without any reservations.

Book reviews
The Hare solicits reviews of old books. The Editors believe that scholarship and pedagogy benefit from the continuous reappraisal of foundational or seminal critical works and also the reconsideration of works whose importance has been forgotten, or heretofore overlooked. The definition of 'old' will remain flexible, and contributors are encouraged to interpret it creatively. Reviews of recently published books will be considered if they are discussed inconjunction with old books. Book reviews should be 1000 - 3000 words; they may cover more than one book; they may cover books that are foundational in, seminal for, or otherwise important to the field of early modern literary studies, or literary studies in general. Book reviews should be submitted with titles.

Readers are encouraged to respond to content in The Hare, or to call attention to scholarly matters that might be of interest to other readers, in the form of publishable letters. Letters should be addressed to the Editors, should be no more than 500 words long, and must be signed. Letters may be edited for content and length.

First Issue
The first issue of The Hare will be published in March 2012. 


CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: Women, the Environment, and Art:
The Centre for Women’s in Education (CWSE) is creating a working group around the theme of women, the environment, and art with the Jackman Humanities Institute. This is an invitation to faculty and students at the University of Toronto and other local institutions who are interested in being involved in this working group proposal. We expect to meet 8 times during the upcoming 2011-12 season to discuss feminism and the environment in different academic disciplines, resulting in a spring symposium. If you’re interested in becoming involved in this early planning stage, please contact Susan Aaron at .

The Journal of Interactive Technology and Pedagogy seeks scholarly work that explores the intersection of technology with teaching, learning, and research. Because we publish in a digital format, we are interested in contributions that take advantage of the affordances of digital platforms in creative ways.

Submissions that focus on pedagogy should balance theoretical frameworks with practical considerations of how new technologies might be employed in the classroom. Research-based articles should include discussions of approach, method, and analysis.

In addition to scholarly articles, we will consider:
• Manifestos and jeremiads: ideological statements that strongly articulate new visions of academic life and work.
• Interviews, dialogues or conversations: interviews with teachers or researchers using new tools or techniques in innovative ways; dialogues between scholars on new directions in pedagogy and research; or roundtable discussions about pedagogy, research, or academic development.
• Reviews of relevant materials in the field: descriptions and critiques of recent offerings in the field, such as new books, hardware, software, CMSes, etc.
• Assignments or exercises, classroom-based or otherwise, accompanied by critical reflection.
• Creative works: videos, animations, poems, games, photographs, presentations, etc.
On average, full-length articles range between 3,500 and 8,000 words, but more important than length is the work’s ability to engage an audience in critically reflecting on the uses of technology in academic contexts.

All submissions must be previously unpublished. We regret that we cannot consider simultaneously submitted work. For our complete guidelines, please go to
