Literary Imaginaries, Legal Imaginaries, and the Work of Law and Literature – CFP for Edited Collection (Special Journal Issue or Anthology)

Almas Khan, Georgetown University Law Center
deadline for submissions:

In both their lives and texts, lawyers who are also literary authors have long implicitly or explicitly explored the complex relationships between creative and practical work; Franz Kafka and Wallace Stevens are among the most salient of these hybrid disciplinarians. The law and literature movement’s burgeoning since James Boyd White’s The Legal Imagination (1973) can be envisaged as the scholarly iteration of this phenomenon. Proposals responding to this call should analyze the generative liminality of literary-legal professionals; all time periods and places are welcome. Additionally, proposals may endeavor to instigate a broader reconceptualization of the interconnections between literature and law and scholarship and praxis.

a/b: Auto/Biography StudiesCall for Papers: Special Issue on Trans Narratives

Deadline: 15 January 2018

“Trans” has taken on a number of important theoretical and critical meanings inside and outside the academy. A prefix with the sense in the OED of ‘across, through, over, to or on the other side of, beyond, outside of, from one place, person, thing, or state to another,’ “trans” can attach itself to other words to connote movement and change, and in this sense it affects what we think we know about media or nation, working to destablize settled knowledge about the world we live in. When it is attached to identity, it has destablized ideas about gender and sexuality.
