I am co-editing with Nora Williams a special issue of Borrowers and Lenders, titled ‘Shakespeare and Politics Between Media.’ It is currently under review; publication is projected in late 2019/early 2020. The special issue is based on the seminar ‘Remediations of Early Modern Drama’, which we led at the 2018 meeting of the Shakespeare Association of America.
