"A voice, sweettoned and sustained": Perspectives on Sustainability and Joyce

This panel welcomes proposals for papers that treat any aspect of sustainability in/and the works of Joyce. Suggested topics include, but are by no means limited to, the following: ecocritical readings of Joyce, sustainable economic and/or political practice in Joyce, digitization and dissemination of the Joycean archive, and pedagogical approaches. As 2014 marks the centenary of the publication of Dubliners, we are particularly interested in presentations which consider this collection in relation to sociocultural, urban, or ecological preservation and progress in modern Ireland, the aesthetics/legacy of the modernist short story, and approaches to teaching Dubliners in the 21st century. By June 15th, please submit a 250-word abstract, brief bio, and A/V requirements to Philip Keel Geheber, at
