Joyce in Progress: Proceedings of the 2008 James Joyce Graduate Conference in Rome
Posted by mnemosineeorfeo su settembre 10, 2009
The essays gathered in Joyce in Progress are the fruit of the First Annual Graduate Conference in Joyce Studies held at the Università Roma Tre in February 2008, and organized by the James Joyce Italian Foundation. They are a testament to the enduring fascination of Joyce’s writings and the ongoing liveliness of debate about the writer and his works and contexts.
There is a wide array of genuine research on show here, which looks at Joyce from a variety of angles, focusing on his deeply complex autobiographical fiction through genetic studies, post-colonial studies, eco-criticism and intertextual and multi-modal approaches.
This volume offers ground-breaking multi¬disciplinary readings and usefully connects Joyce’s work with that of contemporary writers, rivals, followers, and successors.
