Marcia Lemos is putting together a new collection on James Joyce entitled The Other Dubliners: Literature Against Paralysis in Joyce and his Counterparts and it is to be published in 2022 by Cambridge Scholars Publishing.
Ulysses’ 100th anniversary approaches and this collection represents one more opportunity to celebrate Joyce, Dublin, and Irish writers in general. Marcia already has contributions on Joyce, naturally, but also on Beckett, Edna O’Brien, Ann Enright, Flann O’Brien…The Afterword section is going to be signed by Rui Carvalho Homem and she would be very happy to receive further proposals. Abstracts can be sent until the end of June or even in July and full texts later on by October or November. Deadlines have some flexibility at this point.
The abstract/call for the Collection would be the following:
Despite his criticism, in Dubliners and elsewhere, Joyce wrote of nothing but his “Dear Dirty Dublin” (Ulysses). UNESCO City of Literature since 2010, Dublin is the birthplace of many literary masters. This collection includes fifteen relational essays on the work of selected Irish writers, juxtaposing local and global themes.
A Chapter should normally be no longer than 6000 words, and should be original and previously unpublished. If the work has already been published (as a journal article, or in conference proceedings, for example), the Publisher will require evidence that permission to be re-published has been granted.Here’s the link (https://www.cambridgescholars.com/pages/guest-edited-collections) for the file that should be submitted to email@example.com.
