In his lecture, “Joyce’s Ghosts,” Luke Gibbons proposes that Joyce’s Irishness is intrinsic to his modernism, and is not just a source of subject matter but of form itself. Joyce’s stylistic innovations are haunted by memory that slips its moorings in inner life, and circulates through the silences and shadows of a colonial counter-public sphere.
Luke Gibbons is professor of Irish literary and cultural studies at Maynooth University, Ireland, and the author of several books. He is Visiting Professor at NYU for Spring 2015.
