The Henry James Society welcomes proposals for its session at the MLA Convention, January 6-9, Los Angeles.

Henry James in Theory:

From Poulet, Blanchot, Todorov and Cixous to Deleuze, Butler, Bhabha, Sedgwick, Bersani, Kittler and Žižek, Henry James has been a persistent presence in the discourse of literary and critical theory. This panel invites proposals for papers exploring: James's deployment in particular theoretical texts or in the work of particular theorists; his value or function for various theoretical schools or enterprises; the relation between the theorists' James and James as theorist; and/or broader meditations on the implications of James's attractions for, and surfacings and circulations among, the theorists.
