Allen Elizabethan Theater, Oregon Shakespeare Festival

The ISE Chronicle was, in 2008, a unique new platform for Shakespearean performance criticism. It provided, for the first time, a dedicated online space in which theater practitioners, scholars, critics, and members of the public could analyze and interactively discuss contemporary Shakespearean performance. The ISE Chronicle had a dual purpose: (1) to raise current awareness, understanding, and enjoyment of Shakespeare as a twenty-first century global theatrical phenomenon, and (2) to constitute a substantial and permanent database of informed criticism, accessible to future historians, scholars, actors, theater-goers, and students of Shakespeare in performance.

In 2015, we are on the cusp of a new venture. Under the editorship of Kevin Quarmby, the ISE Chronicle will soon be replaced by an open-access journal publishing notes and refereed play reviews of early modern plays. A joint venture of the Internet Shakespeare Editions, the Queen’s Men Editions, and the Digital Renaissance Editions, this new journal will provide a scholarly record of performance history as it’s being made in theaters and playing spaces around the world.

Watch this space for more information! And rest assured that all the ISE Chronicle content will be migrated to the new platform.

– Janelle Jenstad, Associate Coordinating Editor, Internet Shakespeare Editions
