Special issue of JJQ: "Encyclopedia Joyce"

Ulysses and Finnegans Wake are encyclopedic novels—whatever that means. Joyce thought of Ulysses as "a kind of encyclopaedia" (SL 271), and he drew heavily on the eleventh edition of the Encyclopædia Britannica in writing it and the Wake. Both novels have the heft and polymathic breadth of a compact reference encyclopedia. One or the other of them is at the heart of every substantial analysis of encyclopedic literature that extends to modernism, from Northrop Frye's to Edward Mendelson's to Paul Saint-Amour's. Whatever the encyclopedic novel is, surely they're it.

The interconnection of speculative fiction, transgressions against social norms, gender studies, and global perspectives is compelling because speculative fiction allows for a unique approach to social critiques. The worlds that are created in science fiction, fantasy, horror, and dystopian futures allow the genre to explore new or imaginative societies, detached from existing or historical social structures. Such an environment of speculation has led many authors to utilize the genre to comment on women's concerns. Many of these works have, understandably been extensively critically examined.

In his Specters of Marx, first published in France a year before South Africa’s first free elections, Jacques Derrida wrote that "the historic violence of Apartheid can always be treated as a metonymy. In its past as well as in its present. By diverse paths . . . one can always decipher through its singularity so many other kinds of violence going on in the world. At once part, cause, effect, example . . . what is happening there translates to what takes place here, always here, wherever one is and wherever one looks, closest to home."

“At the current rate, it would take until the year 2241 for the average black family to accumulate wealth equal to what white families have today. And it would take Latinos until 2097 to reach parity with whites…assuming the average wealth of white families holds steady at today’s levels.”—Kate Davidson, The Wall Street Journal
