Dear Colleagues,

I write to announce the publication of a new special issue of Literature/Film Quarterly on Ivo van Hove, the Belgian avant-garde director whose mediated, minimalist theatrical productions examine the distinction between film and theatre. Whether he's incorporating live video feeds and camera operators into Shakespeare or staging screenplays by Ingmar Bergman or Joseph L. Mankiewicz, van Hove remains one of the most exciting and divisive artists working on European and North American stages today.

Here's the table of contents:
