Writing the City examines and challenges the traditional transatlantic axis of urban modernism, London-Paris-New York, an axis that has often elided the historical importance of other centres that have shaped metropolitan identities and discourses.MoreWriting the City examines and challenges the traditional transatlantic axis of urban modernism, London-Paris-New York, an axis that has often elided the historical importance of other centres that have shaped metropolitan identities and discourses.

According to Desmond Harding, James Joyces internationalist vision of Dublin generates powerful epistemic and cultural tropes that reconceive the idea of the modern city as a moral phenomenon in transitional and transhistorical terms.

Taking up the works of both Joyce and John Dos Passos, Harding investigates the lasting contributions these authors made to transatlantic intellectual thought in their efforts to envisage the city.
