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

updated: 
Wednesday, August 16, 2017 - 10:26pm
Almas Khan, Georgetown University Law Center
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 10, 2017

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.
