James Joyce: The Situation of ..

Finn Fordham received a first in English from Trinity College, Cambridge, and, funded by the British Academy, went on to write a doctoral thesis at Birkbeck College with Steven Connor. The publication of his thesis (in part about Lucia Joyce) was blocked by the James Joyce Estate. After a year teaching at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow, however, he became a research fellow at University College Northampton, and then secured a Special Research Fellowship with the Leverhulme Trust to carry out research into Textual Genetics and Modernism. He became lecturer in 20th Century Literature at Nottingham in 2003 where he secured funding from the AHRC leave scheme. In January 2008 he moved to Royal Holloway where he became a Reader from April 2010, and a Professor in 2015. He has been invited to present on his work at Universities in Oxford, Dublin, Prague, Trieste, Belgrade, Beijing, St Andrews, Aberystwyth, Geneva, Curitiba, Oslo, and the School of Advanced Studies in London. He lives in Oxford, is married and has two children.

Brandon Kershner’s The Culture of Joyce’s Ulysses, Garry Leonard’s Advertising and Commodity Culture in Joyce, and articles featured in James Joyce Quarterly Volume 30 (Fall 1992-Summer/Fall 1993); this thesis focuses on one specific aspect of commodity culture––that is, fashion items––in Ulysses, believing that a microscopic scrutiny at the details of these fashion items would reveal how Joyce’s innovative language and narrative in Ulysses are rooted in and interlaced with technologies that have inconspicuously yet greatly changed people’s daily life during the period of time when Joyce was writing Ulysses.
