                            Henry Street:
                A Graduate Review of Literary Studies

_Henry Street_, now entering its tenth year of publication, is an
international forum for graduate students of English and related
disciplines. We invite submission of original and scholarly contributions
to current research on literatures in English from all historical periods,
material culture, pedagogy, and critical theory. In addition to welcoming
papers from a broad range of critical perspectives, the journal is
particularly receptive to unconventional or personal approaches that open
new avenues of investigation in literary and cultural criticism.

We welcome submissions on all literary topics at any time. We feature
a special focus in each issue, which also feature articles on general
topics. Some upcoming special topics are:

    _Henry Street_ 9.2 - TECHNOLOGY
    deadline: ASAP

    _Henry Street_ 10.1 - CHAUCER
    deadline: April 1, 2001

Graduate students and recent graduates are encouraged to submit critical
and occasional essays, short fiction, and poetry. Chapters of theses and
conference papers are acceptable, provided they are sufficiently edited
and rigorous enough to stand alone as critical articles.

We especially invite submissions for our regular "Negotiations" feature.
In this section of the journal we present a graduate student essay
foregrounding or critiquing the ideas of a well-established scholar and
that scholar's reply. "Negotiations" is intended to be a stimulating
meeting point for the ideas of graduate students and senior members of the
profession. Should we be unable to obtain a response from your chosen
interlocutor, your essay will proceed to publication as a regular article.
Past exchanges have included student Andrew Lesk and Professor Robert
Lecker on canonicity and the university, and student Cheryl Cowdy Crawford
and author Douglas Glover on Deleuze and Guattari and Glover's novel _The
Life and Times of Captain N_.

_Henry Street_ is indexed by the MLA and the Canadian Periodicals Index.


To be considered for publication, submissions must be double-spaced
throughout (including endnotes and works cited) and follow MLA guidelines
for citation and presentation. Submissions should not exceed 7000 words in
length. To facilitate our process of anonymous review, the author's name
should not appear on the manuscript.
Send two copies of submissions, and include a self-addressed return
envelope accompanied either by Canadian stamps or international reply
coupons. Manuscripts submitted without SASE cannot be returned. The
cover letter must indicate the author's degree status and university
