CFP: American Women's Writing and the Genealogies of Queer Thought (special issue of Legacy: A Journal of American Women Writers)

This special issue of Legacy: A Journal of American Women Writers, guest-edited by Travis M. Foster and Timothy M. Griffiths, aims to address a key contradiction in the development of contemporary queer theory: on the one hand, queer intellectual history has clear though too frequently elided roots in feminism and women’s writing; and, on the other hand, many of queer theory’s most defining arguments draw inductively from astonishingly narrow archives that occlude women’s embodiment, history, desires, and experiences. We seek papers that engage this contradiction by bringing queer theoretical thought into dialogue with American women’s writing from the seventeenth century through the early-twentieth century.

Henry James Books for Review

We are planning a special issue of the JOURNAL OF AMERICAN STUDIES OF TURKEY  on Henry James. The reviews need to be 750-1000 words in length, and should be pitched at general readers rather than specialists.  If you are interested in reviewing, can you please let me know at l_rawjalaurence@yahoo.com.  The deadline would be 15 August 2014
