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.
