                          Henry Street:
               A Graduate Review of Literary Study
          Invites submissions for a new feature section:
_Henry Street_ is proud to announce the inception of a new feature. This
section of the journal will present both 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
We invite graduate students from English and related disciplines to submit
essays that critique, comment on, or otherwise address the work of a
prominent scholar, from whom _Henry Street_ will then solicit a response.
Please note that we are not trying to promote interpretive hostility,
but rather spirited, attentive, and mutually respectful debate. Should we be
unable to obtain a response from your chosen interlocutor, your essay
will proceed to publication as a regular article.
The first "Negotiations" feature will appear in issue 7.2. Robert Lesk's essay
"Untenable Imaginings and Imagined Communities: Robert Lecker on the Failings
of Criticism" critiques institutional imperatives informing the book _Making
it Real: The Canonization of Canadian Literature_ by well-known McGill
University professor Robert Lecker; Prof. Lecker's reply addresses the
inevitability and the ambivalence of such institutional imperatives.
_Henry Street_ is in its eighth year of publishing the work of graduate
students from all over the world, and is indexed by the Modern Language
Association and the Canadian Literary Periodicals Index.
