Shakespeare Bulletin is an academic journal founded in 1982. The journal focuses exclusively on performance studies and scholarly treatment of Shakespearean and early modern drama on stage and screen. Each issue contains original articles as well as theatre, film, and book reviews. Theatre coverage encompasses the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and many other countries. In 1992 the Bulletin incorporated the Shakespeare on Film Newsletter, which had been in publication since 1976. The current editor is Pascale Aebischer of the Centre of Early Modern Studies at the University of Exeter in the United Kingdom.
The journal is published quarterly in March, June, September, and December by the Johns Hopkins University Press. The average length of an issue is 140 pages. Annually, the journal publishes approximately 20 articles, a hundred theatre/film reviews and 10 reviews of performance-oriented books.
Special issues have covered such issues as being 'Not-Shakespeare', the relationship between early modern drama and contemporary realist performance, and the work of Derek Jarman.
Essays are double-blind peer-reviewed, while reviews are commissioned by the appropriate editor.
The journal hosts an annual playreading event and reception at the Shakespeare Association of America meeting and sponsors conferences and workshops concerned with the performance of early modern drama.
