Call for papers:

James Joyce Quarterly welcomes submissions for a special issue, “Joycean Avant-Gardes,” which will explore relationships between the works of James Joyce and avant-garde movements inEurope, Latin America and beyond. If the avant-garde has become an increasingly appealing subject for modernist studies in recent years, this special issue will consider the importance of experimental artistic movements in understandingJoyce’s formal and thematic innovations, as well as for the usefulness of the Joycean oeuvre in developing our understanding of the different stakes and ambitions of the avant-garde. This issue seeks to explore Joyce’s writing in the light of various formal and thematic elements in the works of individual avant-gardewriters and to consider aspects of Joyce’s writing in terms of conflicts between early twentieth-century avant-garde movements. It will also consider Joyce’s influence upon avant-garde movements in the latter half of the twentieth century. The editors seek submissions on “Joycean Avant-Gardes” that explore new ways in which to understand the political stakes of Joyce’s major works, as well as new ways of situating him within twentieth-century literary networks of influence and reception.

Deadline for submissions: 1 February, 2013. Essays to be sent by electronic attachment to Catherine Flynn,cflynn@berkeley.edu, and Richard Brown, r.h.brown@leeds.ac.uk
