Joyce Studies in Italy is a peer-reviewed annual journal aimed at collecting materials which throw light upon Joyce’s work and Joyce’s world. It is open to the contributions of scholars from other academic institutions, both in Italy and abroad, and its broad intertextual approach is aimed at developing a better understanding of the literary and human figure of Joyce, who, both as an individual and a writer, still represents an all-important crossroads in Western culture. The project was initiated in the early Eighties by a research team at the University of Rome, ‘La Sapienza’, led by Giorgio Melchiori. In line with the editorial policy of JSI, no house style is imposed regarding the individual essays in the collection.
Under the auspices of honorary members Umberto Eco and Giorgio Melchiori, The James Joyce Italian Foundation was founded in 2006 (website: http://host.uniroma3.it/associazioni/jjif).
The work of the Foundation, and the issues of the Piccola Biblioteca Joyciana series, are also intended to promote and further the work undertaken by Joyce Studies in Italy.
