John Rickard--Selected Publications and Presentations

I have been teaching in the English Department at Bucknell University since 1990. My primary research and teaching interests are modern Irish and English literature--especially James Joyce and W. B. Yeats--and science and literature. I am also interested in issues of ethnicity, nationalism, postcolonialism, and the construction of identity as they relate to modern Irish (and, by extension, North American) culture.
