Special section, Shakespeare in India

general editors, Tom Bishop and Alexander C.Y. Huang ; editor emeritus, Graham Bradshaw ; special guest editor, Sukanta Chaudhuri

In the twelfth issue of The Shakespearean International Yearbook, a Special Section in eight essays explores India's intense engagement with Shakespeare, the longest of any country outside the Western world. Treating cinema, theater and education in particular, contributors examine how Shakespearean traffic has been routed through many languages and cultural contexts across the subcontinent, from the early nineteenth to the early twentieth century. Introducing a new Yearbook feature, this volume also presents two review essays; the essay topics are 'New Biography Studies, Queer Turns in Theory, and Shakespearean Utility,' and 'Textual Studies, Performance Criticism, and Digital Humanities'. The special section is further supplemented by two additional essays, on Hamlet and Shylock respectively. Among the contributors are Shakespearean scholars from India, Poland, the UK, and the US.
