The author draws from his position as editor of the Florida James Joyce Series to present twelve different new approaches to Joyce study. The book returns home by comparing the centrifugal method (departure) with the centripetal theme (return): Joyce’s departures are a cycle of fifths, which inexorably comes back to the home key. The twelve forewords given in this chapter are all centrifugal gestures, radiating outward in a series that has no limit. Concluding that universities in crisis must expand their definitions of research, teaching, and service, the author finds a home in the colleagues who have supported the Joycean enterprise. The book ends with a tribute to the best of Joyceans, Zack Bowen, whose approach models the empathy, collegiality, and hospitality that universities have forgotten.
