The extended special section in the ninth issue of The Shakespearean International Yearbook investigates the uses to which Shakespeare's work was put in South Africa in the twentieth century. The temporal limit emphasizes how the titanic political and ideological struggles that convulsed South Africa also affected how Shakespeare was studied, interpreted, taught and performed. This issue also includes essays on Henry V; garden scenes in Shakespeare; and all-male productions of As you Like It.

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.

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.

What makes Shakespeare centrally 'exceptional' to the current humanities curriculum, a measure and minimum unit for University administrations and the general public to recognise the activity of 'the humanities'? The essays in this issue of the Yearbook ask how we might push this question beyond categories of the exceptional, the superlative, the above, beyond, below, or even the normative, in order to scale Shakespeare historically, canonically, and ontologically in relation to 'the human'. In the now-established tradition of The Shakespearean International Yearbook, the 15th issue surveys important developments and topics of concern in contemporary Shakespeare studies.

This issue marks the 10th anniversary of The Shakespearean International Yearbook. On this occasion, the special section celebrates the achievement of senior Shakespearean scholar Robert Weimann, whose work on the Elizabethan theatre and early modern performance culture has so influenced contemporary scholarship. Ten essays in this issue of Yearbook, including one by the honoree himself, focus on those aspects of Shakespearean studies which Weimann has impacted most profoundly: the idea and practice of a "popular tradition", the materialist critique of early modern theater, the practices of early modern authorship, acting and theatricality, and his celebrated bifold articulation of authority and representation. In addition to this extensive exploration of Weimann's work, the volume includes essays on The Comedy of Errors, Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare and Lucretius, and Shakespeare on BBC television. The Shakespearean International Yearbook continues to provide an annual survey of important issues and developments in contemporary Shakespeare studies. Among the contributors are Shakespearean scholars from Ireland, Japan, France, Germany, South Africa, UK, and the US.
