Shakespeare Jahrbuch

Shakespeare Jahrbuch, the yearbook of the German Shakespeare Society, first appeared in 1865. Since 2019, it has been published by Kröner Verlag (Stuttgart). It is a peer-reviewed academic journal, containing scholarly articles in English and German (usually on a special topic), reviews of theatre productions on German-speaking stages of the preceding year, a book review section, and reports on the work of the German Shakespeare Society.

The Shakespeare Jahrbuch is edited by Isabel Karremann (Zurich) and  Sabine Schülting (Berlin); Felix Sprang (Siegen) is in charge of the theatre review section, and  Susanne Gruß (Erlangen-Nürnberg) und Lena Steveker (Luxemburg) are responsible for the book review section.

The editorial board is supported by an international Advisory Board with the following members:

  • Lukas Erne (Université de Genève)
  • Ewan Fernie (Shakespeare Institute, University of Birmingham)
  • Marta Gibińska (Uniwersytet Jagielloński, Kraków)
  • Diana Henderson (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)
  • Ton Hoenselaars (Universiteit Utrecht)
  • Andreas Mahler (Freie Universität Berlin)
  • Ángel-Luis Pujante (Universidad de Murcia)
  • Hanna Scolnicov (Tel-Aviv University)
  • Jyotsna G. Singh (Michigan State University)
  • Nathalie Vienne-Guerrin (Université Paul Valéry Montpellier 3)

Members of the Shakespeare Society receive the Shakespeare Jahrbuch free of charge. The Jahrbuch can also be ordered through booksellers or directly from the publisher for 50 EUR.
