Issue Description

The special issue entitled “Shakespeare and Women: Voices and Silences” seeks to cast further light on the definitions and interrelations of female voices and silences, subjectivity and objectivity, speech and non-speech, adding to the ongoing feminist debate on these topics. The papers collected in this issue focus not only on women’s silent voices and voiced silences but also on women ventriloquized by Shakespeare and ‘Shakespeares’ ventriloquized by women.

Linguæ & was founded in 2002 by Roberta Mullini, who served as the Editor-in Chief and General Editor of the Journal from 2002 to 2021.
We have the pleasure to welcome authors and readers to this new web platform that will host this journal from 2022. First of all, we wish to thank the efficient technical staff of the University of Urbino who will assist us and collaborate with us in this new adventure. A special thanks goes to Roberta Mullini for having guided and accompanied us over the years: we do hope she will continue to support us in our work with her valuable advice and expertise. Finally, a promise: in this transition year we will not be able to publish the first issue by July, as usual; however, both of them will be published with the date 2022.
