Call For Papers:

A New Book of Morses: Encoding Joyce in the 21st Century.

The celebration of the one-hundredth anniversary of Bloomsday marked a high
point for Joyce Studies and for the scholars who have published and lectured on
James Joyce over the past half a century. Their work has also provided a solid
foundation for new research and fresh approaches to the study of Joyce's
writing. It is in the spirit of such research that we are compiling a book
called A New Book of Morses: Encoding Joyce in the 21st Century, which will be
published by Rodopi as part of their European Joyce Studies series.

In recent weeks, a heated debate over the dangers academic bloggers may face when applying for jobs has emerged as a result of a recent essay in The Chronicle of Higher Education (http://chronicle.com/jobs/2005/07/2005070801c.htm). The author, writing under the pseudonym Ivan Tribble, claims, among other things, that often the simple practice of maintaining a "blog was a negative" for applicants seeking employment in his department. "The content of the blog," Tribble continues, "may be less worrisome than the fact of the blog itself.
