This call for papers is for a proposed panel to be held at “(dis)junctions:

In Henry James’ “The Tragic Muse,” the character Gabriel Nash is labeled
“queer.” Many have pointed to his questionable sexuality while ignoring the
other meaning that Victorian readers would apply: non-normative. Is queer
sexuality also paired with queer ideas and actions? What other characters
within his novels exhibit this dual identification of the term “queer”? Is
this the only way in Victorian literature to signify alternative
sexualities?

Abstracts no longer than 250 words should be e-mailed to:
