The first decade of the new century has certainly been a busy one for diversity in Shakespearean performance and interpretation, yielding, for example, global, virtual, digital, interactive, televisual, and cinematic Shakespeares. In Locating Shakespeare in the Twenty-First Century, Gabrielle Malcolm and Kelli Marshall assess this active world of Shakespeare adaptation and commercialization as they consider both novel and traditional forms: from experimental presentations (in-person and online) and literal rewritings of the plays/playwright to televised and filmic Shakespeares. More specifically, contributors in Locating Shakespeare in the Twenty-First Century examine the BBC’s ShakespeaRE-Told series, Canada’s television program Slings and Arrows, the Mumbai-based film Maqbool, and graphic novels in Neil Gaiman’s Sandman series, as well as the future of adaptation, performance, digitization, and translation via such projects as National Theatre Live, the Victoria and Albert Museum’s Archive of Digital Performance, and the British Library’s online presentation of the complete Folios. Other authors consider the place of Shakespeare in the classroom, in the Kenneth Branagh canon, in Jewish revenge films (Quentin Tarantino’s included), in comic books, in Young Adult literature, and in episodes of the BBC’s popular sci-fi television program Doctor Who. Ultimately, this collection sheds light, at least partially, on where critics think Shakespeare is now and where he and his works might be going in the near future and long-term. One conclusion is certain: however far we progress into the new century, Shakespeare will be there.

This eighth volume of The Shakespearean International Yearbook presents a special section on 'European Shakespeares', proceeding from the claim that Shakespeare's literary craft was not just native English or British, but was filtered and fashioned through a Renaissance awareness that needs to be recognized as European, and that has had effects and afterlives across the Continent. Guest editors Ton Hoenselaars and Clara Calvo have constructed this section to highlight both how the spread of 'Shakespeare' throughout Europe has brought together the energies of a wide variety of European cultures across several centuries, and how the inclusion of Shakespeare in European culture has been not only a European but also a world affair. The Shakespearean International Yearbook continues to provide an annual survey of important issues and developments in contemporary Shakespeare studies. Contributors to this issue come from the US and the UK, Spain, Switzerland and South Africa, Canada, The Netherlands, India, Portugal, Greece, France, and Hungary. In addition to the section on European Shakespeares, this volume includes essays on the genre of romance, issues of character, and other topics.
