  1. Global Shakespeare Criticism Beyond the Nation State [Download]

    Title: Global Shakespeare Criticism Beyond the Nation State
    Author: Joubin, Alexa Alice
    Description: To move global Shakespeare studies beyond the more limiting scope of nation-state and cultural profiling, I would like to propose we consider a number of critical concepts as methodology. These concepts critique the limitations of cartographic imagination, and connect the performance site to spaces of knowledge production: (1) the site of performance and the myth of global Shakespeare; (2) diaspora and racial tensions; (3) art in post-national space; (4) the ethics of quoting Shakespeare and world cultures; and (5) the production and dissemination of knowledge through archives.

  2. Review of Emily Sun's Succeeding King Lear: Literature, Exposure, and the Possibility of Politics [Download]

    Title: Review of Emily Sun's Succeeding King Lear: Literature, Exposure, and the Possibility of Politics
    Author: Joubin, Alexa Alice
    Description: English Romantic reception of King Lear is an important part of Shakespeare's afterlife. This book investigates Anglo-American post-Romanticist readings and appropriations of Lear as a seminal text on the relationship between literature and politics, specifically succession as a philosophical and political issue in British Romanticism and American modernism. The book suggests that King Lear helps William Wordsworth, journalist James Agee, and photographer Walker Evans articulate their anxieties about literary representation and political successions.

  3. Global Shakespeares in World Markets and Archives: An Introduction to the Special Issue [Download]

    Title: Global Shakespeares in World Markets and Archives: An Introduction to the Special Issue
    Author: Joubin, Alexa Alice
    Description: Shakespeare is a local force to be reckoned with in the global marketplace and in digital and analog archives of collective memory. With the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare's birth in 2014 and quatercentenary in 2016, there are several high-profile instances of global Shakespeare being tapped for its market value. The exchange value of Shakespeare is reflected in uses of Shakespearean themes and artifacts in appropriations, cultural diplomacy, and venues where nation states project soft power. There are no world markets without the proliferation of archives built on collective cultural memory. Conversely, there would be no archives without the cultural marketplace to validate that Shakespearean artifacts are archive-worthy in the first place.

  4. Shakespeare and the Ethics of Appropriation [Download]

    Title: Shakespeare and the Ethics of Appropriation
    Author: Joubin, Alexa Alice
    Description: At a time when Shakespeare is becoming increasingly globalized and diversified, it is urgent more than ever to ask how this appropriated 'Shakespeare' constructs ethical value across cultural and other fault lines. Shakespeare and the Ethics of Appropriation is the first book to address the intersection of ethics, aesthetics, authority, and authenticity.
