The New Joyce Studies


The New Joyce Studies indicates the variety and energy of research on James
Joyce since the year 2000. The essays examine Joyce’s works and their reception in
the light of a larger set of concerns: a diverse international terrain of scholarly
modes and methodologies, an imperilled environment, and crises of racial
justice, to name just a few. This is a Joyce studies that dissolves early visions
of Joyce as a sui generis genius by reconstructing his indebtedness to specific
literary communities. It models ways of integrating masses of compositional and
publication details with literary and historical events. It develops hybrid critical
approaches from posthuman, medical, and queer methodologies. It analyzes
the nature and consequences of its extension from Ireland to mainland Europe,
and to Africa and Latin America. Examining issues of copyright law, translation,
and the history of literary institutions, this volume seeks to use Joyce’s canonical
centrality to inform modernist studies more broadly.
