The James Joyce Universe is a networked digital scholarly resource involving a range of projects – or ‘planets’ – and a consortium of scholars and institutions. Danis Rose and Stacey Herbert will help us explore their ‘planets’.
Danis Rose will discuss and demonstrate The Finnigans Wake Hypertext, a comprehensive interlinked databank of all manuscripts and documents attesting to the genesis and development of the work, and the critical apparatus for the new Houyhnhnm edition of Finnegans Wake. In addition to Joyceans, Danis’s talk will interest textual editors, genetic scholars, electronic text creators and technicians.
Stacey Herbert will discuss and demonstrate The Joyce Biography, a complete analytical bibliography, publication history, census, and virtual library of all lifetime editions. It is also the ‘front door’ to the Universe. Stacey’s talk will interest book historians, material modernism scholars and librarians.
