The Yale Journal of Criticism hopes to publish a cluster of four to five
critical essays on the recent translation of Walter Benjamin's The Arcades
Project.  As well as analysis of the book as a whole we welcome work that
considers the impact of the new translation on Benjamin studies and on
cultural criticism more generally -- how and to what extent existing
interpretations of Benjamin now come to require revision.  The deadline for
consideration is May 1, 2001.  Please send articles to The Yale Journal of
Criticism, The Whitney Humanities Center, P.O. Box 208298, New Haven, CT
06520. For further details contact or

Please forward this call to anyone you think might be interested.
