"The first swallows of a recognisably contemporary philosophy and theory took their flight," writes Frederic Jameson, in [Georges] Bataille’s journal Critique.1 They nested in still other journals whose names continue to hold an almost talismanic power over their fields (Tel QuelMerkurePrésence AfricaineCahiers du cinéma, and Screen), as well as a later generation of journals born out of theory’s first American heyday in the 1970s (SignsSubStance, Semiotext(e)Critical InquiryOctober, and Diacritics), not to mention book series published by university and small presses committed to theory’s translation into English and proliferation throu

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.
