             Subject: Latest issue of Early Modern Literary Studies

    Early Modern Literary Studies is delighted to announce its September
    issue, a special issue on the theme of Gold containing a number of papers
    from the Northern Renaissance Seminar conference on Gold held at Sheffield
    Hallam University in November 2001, and a special contribution from Richard
    Abrams on the highly topical question of the 'Elegy for William
    Peter'. The full list of articles appears below, and the issue also
    contains the usual complement of reviews and theatre reviews. As usual,
    the journal can be accessed free online at

    Articles on Gold:

    "Powdered with Golden Rain": The Myth of Danae in Early Modern Drama.
    [1]Julie Sanders, Keele University.

    Orlando and the Golden World: The Old World and the New in As You
    Like It.
    [2] Lisa Hopkins, Sheffield Hallam University.

    "In his gold I shine": Jacobean Comedy and the art of the mediating trickster.
    [3] Alizon Brunning, University of Central Lancashire.

    "O unquenchable thirst of gold": Lyly's Midas and the English quest for Empire.
    [4] Annaliese Connolly, Sheffield Hallam University.

    "The City Cannot Hold You": Social Conversion in the Goldsmith's Shop.
    [5] Janelle Day Jenstad, University of Windsor.

    "W. S.'s Elegy for William Peter": A Special Contribution: Meet the Peters.
    [6] Richard Abrams, University of Southern Maine.

    Sheffield Hallam University English department is also pleased to
    announce the launch of Volume 4 of its inhouse journal Working Papers on
    the Web. The theme of this issue is teaching Renaissance texts, both the
    centrally canonical and the lesser-known. Three of the essays, by Michael
    Best, Scott Howard, and Matt Hansen, focus on the period's most famous
    author, Shakespeare, but all describe unusual methods of encouraging
    students to engage with him. Carrie Hintz looks at an equally major
    figure, Milton, and discusses strategies for
    teaching Paradise Lost to religiously committed students. Other essays
    stray further from the beaten track: Ty Buckman focuses on the literary
    culture of 1590s London; Roze Hentschell considers ways of introducing
    non-canonical literature into undergraduate teaching; and Rowland Wymer
    describes how a course centred on the use of films such as La Reine Margot
    can be used to introduce students to the study of the Renaissance. The
    journal can be accessed free online at
