David Vichnar, PhD

Department of Anglophone Literatures and Cultures (Room 34)

Faculty of Arts, Charles University Prague

This seminar will focus on readings of Joyce’s major works, along with several marginal pieces, in the context of a number of key critical traditions: from the earliest commentaries of Pound, Eliot, Beckett, and Frank Budgen, to the pioneering exegetical work of Hugh Kenner, Adaline Glasheen, Richard Ellmann, John Bishop, and Fritz Senn, through to the critiques of Umberto Eco, Julia Kristeva, Hélène Cixous, Jacques Lacan, and Jacques Derrida. Topics will range from myth, narratology and aesthetics, to subjectivity, cultural politics and cybernetics.
