Before Joyce became famous as writer, he supported himself through his other language work: English-language teaching in Pola, Trieste, and Rome. The importance of James Joyce’s teaching, however, has been underestimated until now. The very playfulness and unconventionality that made him a popular and successful teacher has led his pedagogy to be underrated, and the connections between his teaching and his writing have been largely neglected. James Joyce’s Teaching Life and Methods reveals the importance in A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, Ulysses, and Finnegans Wake of pedagogy and the understanding of language Joyce gained teaching English as a Foreign Language in Berlitz schools and elsewhere.
Elizabeth Switaj is a Liberal Arts Instructor at the College of the Marshall Islands. Her previous publications include essays on Joyce, which have appeared in the Journal of Modern Literature and the Joyce Studies in Italy series, and a collection of poetry, Magdalene and the Mermaids.

Women only spaces are a fundamental part of the feminist movement and represent women’s right to self-determination and liberation. We’re collecting short stories, poetry, essays, plays, flash fiction, and all other forms of the written word that illustrate and explore what we mean as a ‘woman only space’ and the importance of these spaces for the feminist and womanist movements and women in general: as a space which prioritises women’s voices over mens and that refuses to allow men to dictate the terms of the conversation.
We expect that many of the submissions we receive will have fundamental disagreements about this issue. We believe that that this discussion is essential to the health and future of the feminist and womanist movements. We want to hear and support the voices of all feminists and womanists working respectfully to liberate all women.
The proceeds of this book will be used to support this platform covering the costs of hosting and website maintenance and development.
Submission deadline: August 30, 2109
