Racing Against the Numbers: Speculating Racialized Futurity

“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

Special issue of JJQ: "Encyclopedia Joyce"

updated: 
Friday, September 23, 2016 - 10:03am
The James Joyce Quarterly
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, January 31, 2017

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.
