In a near-perfect convergence of international academic and market interests, middlebrow and highbrow print cultures, modernist and postmodernist aesthetics, Cold War hegemonies and decolonization struggles, and cosmopolitan and postcolonial agendas, James Joyce became a key point of reference in the writings of Iberian and Ibero-American pre-boom, boom, and post-boom authors. TransLatin Joyce proposes new ways of addressing the following question: What can the study of the routes and rates of circulation of James Joyce's work in the Ibero-American or the intra-Latino literary systems teach us about the cartographies of peripheral modernism on the global scale? Based on new in-depth archival findings and close textual readings, this exciting collection of nine essays argues that Joyce's legacy is at present best valued and understood from the vantage point of postcolonial writing in Spanish and Portuguese.

"A well documented mapping of Joyce's influence on Ibero-American writers." Roberto González Echevarría, Sterling Professor of Hispanic and Comparative Literature, Yale University, USA
"TransLatin Joyce is a testament to the enduring relevance of Joyce to Iberian and Latin American culture. In this volume, the high modernist Joyce gives way to a Joyce attuned to the flows and exchanges of the contemporary global reality, where questions of influence and reflection have been left behind, and a new and expansive horizon of cultural production and dissemination holds sway. Joyce is masterfully shown here to be a prism through which we can read Iberian and Latin American engagements with the modern, the postmodern, and the global.' - Carlos J. Alonso, Morris A. and Alma Schapiro Professor in the Humanities, Columbia University, USA
"TransLatin Joyce represents a rich engagement with the complex chronological, intertextual, transnational, and multitranslational history and interactions between James Joyce and pre-boom, boom, and post-boom Iberian and Ibero-American writers. Although Joyce's impact and influence (for good and ill) on generations of Hispano- and Lusophone writers have long been acknowledged, this collection contributes significantly to the reconsideration of Joyce's unique role in a context that is postcolonial, postmodern, and global and to the way he serves as an exemplary subject for the comparative study of world literatures." - Alan W. Friedman, Arthur J. Thaman and Wilhelmina Doré Thaman Professor of English and Comparative Literature, University of Texas at Austin, USA
"Is Joyce's legacy at present best valued and understood from the vantage of postcolonial writing in Spanish and Portuguese? This exciting collection makes a good case for this proposition by tracing the circulation of Joycean aesthetics through the Iberian Peninsula, Mexico, Central America, South America, and the Hispanic Caribbean. A must-read not only for Joyceans but for scholars of transnational modernism, translation studies, and literature of the Americas!" - Mark Wollaeger, Professor of English, Vanderbilt University, USA
