Shakespeare Quarterly

spines of Shakespeare Quarterly issues arranged by color

Shakespeare Quarterly (SQ) is a leading journal in Shakespeare studies, publishing highly original, rigorously researched essays, notes, and book reviews. Published for the Folger Shakespeare Library by the Oxford University Press (OUP), SQ is peer-reviewed and very selective.

The essays in our published pages span the field and feature readings of Shakespeare’s works influenced by queer and gender studies, premodern critical race studies (PCRS), textual studies, theater history, and archival, new media, and historicist approaches. Our mission, simply put, is to present the best scholarship on Shakespeare.
