A Small Boy and Others: Henry James and the Child

updated: 
Sunday, February 21, 2021 - 7:32pm
Henry James Society
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, March 15, 2021

Children appear in James’s fiction in many different kinds of roles, from the annoying little brother in Daisy Miller to the impressionable girl of What Maisie Knew. He also wrote extensively about his own childhood and those of his siblings. None of these writings are, however, for child readers, unlike the work of Lewis Carroll or Robert Louis Stevenson or Mark Twain or Louisa May Alcott. What opportunities does James find in his representations of children? How does the development of his late style affect these possibilities? These topics are suggestions, but other approaches to the subject are invited.

 

Illness, Society and the Self

In the context of the current viral pandemic, we look with fresh intensity at figurations of the invalid and of disease and disability in James’s fictional and non-fictional writing. With an eye to the cultural and political aspects of public health measures aimed at managing the spread of an infectious pathogen, we ask in particular about the relation in James’s work of sickness, subjectivity and society. How do James’s texts relate social experience to bodily ill-health or impairment? Does James position the invalid as a figure indicative of dysfunction in the larger social body, or suggest, in contrast, that illness or disability may be associated with an excess of social contact, a failure of ‘social distancing’?

Trans James

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, March 1, 2021

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

The Idea of the Lumpenproletariat

Tuesday, February 9, 2021 - 2:17pm
Ben Clarke, University of North Carolina, Greensboro
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, March 1, 2021

            Marx and Engels famously use the term lumpenproletariat to describe “that passively rotting mass thrown off by the lowest layers of old society.” The concept suggests that the most marginal are not part of the revolutionary class but are in fact more likely to function as a “bribed tool of reactionary intrigue.” As Raphael Samuel noted, the word came to function as an “unproblematic term of abuse” in early twentieth-century Communist discourse, suggesting a relation between political unreliability and moral failings. The precarious were not merely represented as a threat to radical movements but as personally contemptible in ways that drew on conservative ideas of the undeserving poor.

Theatre and Popular Culture in the English Restoration and 18th Century

Monday, May 10, 2021

The English theatre culture from the early Restoration to the early 18th century witnessed a marked shift towards increased commercialization and popularization of theatre. Gone were the post-1660 close association with the court, royalist productions, and prominently elite (well-off and upper-class) audiences. Instead, the experimentation with new genres, opening of new theatres, and a growing differentiation of the theatre programme into mainpieces, entr’acte entertainments and afterpieces revolutionized the established cultural hierarchies of the period.
