CFP: Mobility, Paralysis, and Identity in Dubliners

As we celebrate 100 years of reading Joyce's Dubliners, this collection will reconsider narrative devices and strategies that Joyce scholars tend to accept as gospel. We hope to challenge canonical notions of mobility, paralysis, identity, and gender as we offer readings of a variety of stories in the collection.

Single paragraph abstracts are due Friday, August 8. Full essays should be 6,000-8,000 words and will be due Friday, October 3.

Please submit your proposals to Ellen Scheible at We look forward to hearing your ideas!
