Academic Writing: Intercultural and textual issuesWriting is crucial to the academic world. It is the main mode of communication among scientists and scholars and also a means for students for obtaining their degrees. The papers in this volume highlight the intercultural, generic and textual complexities of academic writing.

English Postcoloniality: Literatures from Around the WorldAs the British empire expanded throughout the world, the English language played an important role in power relations between Britain and its colonies.

Irregularities in Modern EnglishThis book, which appeared first in a Danish version in 1980 and subsequently in an English translation in 1986, reverses the history of the English language: it takes present-day English ‘irregularities’ in grammar and spelling as its point of departure, providing historical explanations only to the extent that they illustrate modern forms. A number of comparisons with developments in other Germanic languages are given, not only with Danish phenomena as in the original Danish edition, but also with Dutch and German ones.

Ulysses in Critical Perspective

Ulysses in Critical PerspectiveThis collection of essays is the first in 15 years to review the current state of theory on James Joyce’s Ulysses, and this volume comes more than 100 years after the fictitious Leopold Bloom steps into the novel, a day Joyceans celebrate as Bloomsday. The contributors—well known for their work in James Joyce studies—each provide three assessments in their areas of specialization: a history of the best criticism to date, a timely updating of critical positions, and an agenda for future examination.
