Review: The Practice of Citizenship: Black Politics and Print Culture in the Early United States, by Derrick R. Spires
Will Clark, Assistant Professor of English at San Francisco State University, is the author of “Narrative Time and Anti-Queer Prejudice in Henry James’s The Bostonians,” published in The Henry James Review (2020). He is now working on a book manuscript, “Perverse Citizens: U.S. Fiction and the Conception of Queer Rights,” which argues that a strain of U.S. fiction at the turn of the twentieth century depicts the emergent category of queerness by challenging the exclusion of queer subjects from the fullest extent of U.S. membership.
