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

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.

Affect and emotion have long been staples of WPA scholarship, field stories, and lore. In fact, Diana George’s iconic collection, Kitchen Cooks, Plate Twirlers & Troubadours: Writing Program Administrators Tell Their Stories, includes several chapters dedicated to the emotional labor of WPAs, such as Mary Pinard’s “Surviving the Honeymoon: Bliss and Anxiety in a WPA’s First Year or Appreciating the Plate Twirler’s Art,” in which she discusses the isolation and pressure of a do-it-yourself approach, and Doug Hesse’s “The WPA as Father, Husband, Ex,” in which he discusses the roots and implications of his perpetual feeling of provisional access and his need to be a prover and a provider, all rooted in his working class background (47).
