The Languages of James Joyce, NeMLA convention, April 7-10, 2011
This panel welcomes papers investigating Joyce's multilingualism. What are the aesthetic and political implications of crossing language boundaries, narrating through multilingual puns and polyglot pastiche in Joyce's works? Suitable topics include the author's complicated relation with Irish, the challenge of translating Joyce's multilingual texts, the relationship between Joyce's multilingualism and cosmopolitanism, and comparisons between Joyce and other writers.
Comparative and interdisciplinary approaches are welcome.
The NeMLA conference, hosted by Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey, will take place on April 7-10, 2011.
