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

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
