deadline for submissions:

Henry James scholarship has hesitated to engage with the challenges and opportunities presented by the rich and proliferating constellation of thought that is Trans Studies. How might the question of transgender revise, reinvigorate or transform our understanding of James’s writing, and / or of James as a biographical subject?

We welcome proposals addressing any aspect of the topic. Possible approaches might include:

-          Transgender subjects in James’s fictional worlds and nonfiction texts

-          Transgender and subjectless queer critique

-          Sex, gender, and narration

-          Transgender and sexuality

-          Transgender and sibling relationships

"Crossroads: The Risks of Making Choices"

Virtural Conference: April 16th-17th

 

"Each decision we make closes off a series of possible alternatives. What happens if we try to make several contradictory decisions at once and keep them separate, in open series? A political life, an academic life, an emotional life, family life, sexual, religious, all of which may have diffuse (not to say clandestine) relationships between them" Ricardo Piglia, The Way Out (258)

Henry James Review
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, March 1, 2021

In the opening preface to the New York Edition of his fiction, James famously wrote: “Really, universally, relations stop nowhere, and the exquisite problem of the artist is eternally but to draw, by a geometry of his own, the circle in which they shall happily appear to do so. . . . The prime effect of so sustained a system, so prepared a surface, is to lead on and on; while the fascination of following resides, by the same token, in the presumability somewhere of a convenient, of a visibly-appointed stopping-place.”

James’s problem of the artist is also the problem of scholarship: Finding a “convenient . . . stopping-place” that also leads readers “on and on” in their own work and thinking too.

Representation of queer identities in twenty-first century popular television has undergone massive shifts in the last decade.
