The James Joyce Quarterly is delighted to welcome two new members to its international Editorial Advisory Board: Dr. John Nash and Dr. Jolanta Wawrzycka. Both are distinguished experts in the field and will bring to the board some new expertise in established and emerging areas like translation, reception studies, and literary history.
Nash currently teaches at Durham University in the U.K., where he has worked since 2006, having previously worked at Trinity College Dublin for a decade. He is author of James Joyce and the Act of Reception (Cambridge 2006), editor of Joyce’s Audiences (Rodopi 2002) and James Joyce in the Nineteenth Century (Cambridge 2013) in addition to several essays and articles on Joyce. He has a particular interest in relationships between literature and British-Irish relations and has written on Virginia Woolf in this regard as well as Joyce.
Wawrzycka is Professor of English at Radford University in Virginia. She has lectured at Joyce schools in Dublin and Trieste, attended over a dozen Zurich James Joyce Foundation workshops, and currently serves as a Trustee of the International James Joyce Foundation. She co-edited Gender in Joyce (UFP, 1997), Portals of Recovery, (Bulzoni 2017), and James Joyce’s Silences (Bloomsbury 2018), guest-edited translation issues of JJQ (2010) and Scientia Traductionis (2010; 2012), and edited Reading Joycean Temporalities (Brill 2018). She has also translated Roman Ingarden, Czesław Miłosz, W.B. Yeats, and Joyce’s Chamber Music.
For over fifty years, the JJQ has been the international journal of record for Joyce studies and its editorial board assures that only the strongest and most innovative work makes it into the journal pages. These advisors, furthermore, help identify and cultivate new research that helps lead us ever deeper in the surprises, pleasures, and complexities of one of the world’s most influential writers.
