trying to store a pointer to my presenter in view class

Here's my presenter class:

public class ListPresenter<TViewInterface, TContext> : Presenter<TViewInterface, TContext>
            where TViewInterface : IContextView<TContext>, IListView
            where TContext : IObservableObject
{
     protected override void OnInitializePresentationComplete(dynamic data)
     {
      View.ViewPresenter = (ListPresenter<TViewInterface, TContext>)this;
     }
}

Here's how I am defining the property in the view:

public ListPresenter<IListView, IObservableObject> ViewPresenter { get; set; }

The compile time exception showing on the ViewPresenter property is "The type IListView cannot be used as type parameter TViewInterface in the generic type or method ListPresenter<TViewInterface, TContect>.  There is no implicit reference conversion from IListView to IContextview<IObservableObject>.

Am I defining the ViewPresenter incorrectly?  Or am I not casting it correctly?  Or both?

I finally figured out how to do what I needed to.  I wanted to give my view direct access to methods in the presenter, but what I was missing was the presenter contract.  I defined an interface for the presenter, IListPresenter, and had the presenter inherit from it.  After that it became simple to cast the presenter and store the pointer.

So my presenter definition now looks like this:

public class ListPresenter<TViewInterface, TContext> : Presenter<TViewInterface, TContext>, IListPresenter
      where TViewInterface : IContextView<TContext>, IListView
      where TContext : IObservableObject
{
      public ListPresenter()
      {
            View.ViewPresenter = (IListPresenter)this;
      }

...and the base view's property...

public IListPresenter ViewPresenter { get; set; }
