No other modernist writer in English has attracted more or broader international attention than James Joyce. Translations, adaptations, and imitations as well as works of criticism are being published in increasing numbers and frequency, and show a proliferating diversity of approaches and perspectives on the work, life, and influence of Joyce.
In view of the internationalism of Joyce studies, and the current dissemination of literary-critical pluralism, this peer-reviewed series hopes to offer a platform for specifically "European" perspectives on Joyce's works, their adaptations, annotation, and translation, studies in biography, the history of and current debates in Joyce criticism, Joyce's place in literary history, matters of influence and the transmission of ideas etc.
In calling this series "European" in the broadest sense, we aim at soliciting not only the submission of articles by European contributors, but more generally all essays and research focusing on issues of European concern such as language, nationality and culture, literary-historical movements, ideology, politics, and distribution, as well as literary-critical perspectives with European roots.
Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/or full manuscripts to the publisher at BRILL, Masja Horn.

“Since the 1980s, the European Joyce Studies series has consistently published the best and most innovative work in Joyce studies. When taken individually, each volume offers precise and insightful scholarship and when taken together the series illustrates the evolution of the main trend-lines within Joyce studies.”
- Sam Slote, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland
“Looking back at the production of the European Joyce Studies series over the years, we realize that is has no equivalent for the number of significant volumes published in the different areas of Joyce scholarship. I would like to emphasize particularly its unparalleled contribution to the genetic approach of Joyce.”
- Daniel Ferrer, Director of Research Emeritus at the Institut des textes et manuscrits modernes (École Normale Supérieure-CNRS), France
