• Hypermedia Joyce Studies
Announcing the latest issue of Hypermedia Joyce Studies.
As with the previous issues of HJS, this one seeks to bring together work from across the spectrum of Joycean criticism, while maintaining a focus on the increased role played by media technologies in Joyce scholarship. Essays in this volume touch upon subjects ranging from Joycean Hypertext (Donald F. Theall) to Leo Taxil (Gregory Downing), translation (Gerald Parks), and Giacomo Joyce (Fritz Senn, Clare Wallace, M.E. Roughley and Louis Armand).
