For the 2015 edition, we are actively seeking contributions on scholarly topics directly related to the author and his role in the literary culture of his time. Especially welcome are studies of the plays and poetry; their sources; relations to genre; lines of influence; classical, medieval, and continental contexts; performance and theater history; textual studies; the author’s professional milieu and place in early modern English poetry, drama, and culture. Marlowe Studies prefers essays that present well-focused arguments. We do not consider unrevised conference papers or dissertation chapters, material submitted elsewhere simultaneously or previously published, or articles on the authorship “controversy” in popular culture (i.e., that Marlowe wrote Shakespeare, or vice versa). Although a shorter article is not unwelcome, we do not publish notes or book reviews.
