Call for Papers: For over four decades, Fredric Jameson has been one of the major theorists of realism, modernism, post-modernism, and their ideologies. While he has not written directly on Henry James in a sustained way, James’s writing is, nonetheless, threaded throughout Jameson’s work: as example, as critical authority, as historical witness. For an upcoming special issue of the Henry James Review, submissions are invited on all aspects of Jameson & James. Click here for the complete call.
