The Henry James Society will sponsor two sessions at the 25-28 May 2006
convention of the American Literature Association, in San Francisco:

Topic 1: Henry James and the Other Women I: Proposals sought on the topic
of women other than Minnie Temple or Constance Fenimore Woolson whose
working or personal relationship with James can be shown to have an impact
on how we read his career and/or oeuvre.

Topic 2: Henry James in Fiction: Proposals sought on Henry James as a
character in recent fictional biographies, such as those by David Lodge and
Colm Toibìn. Why suddenly this new sub-genre of the fictional biography
and why James? What does this phenomenon (or these two phenomena) say
about our current cultural moment and James?

Proposals, in the form of 2-page (max.) abstracts should be sent by January
15, 2006 to:

Pierre A. Walker
President, Henry James Society for 2006
Professor of English
Salem State College
