Professor Nugent’s teaching and research engage with Ireland about the turn of the twentieth century. Writing within the confluence of Joyce Studies, Sensory Studies, Urban Studies, and technology, his recent work relates transformations in the sense of smell to the embourgeoisement of nineteenth-century Ireland. His writings have appeared in Victorian Studies, The Senses and Society, and Éire-Ireland. He teaches courses on Joyce, modernism, and in the Irish language. He is currently developing Walking Ulysses <www.ulysses.bc.edu> a downloadable smartphone app guide to Joyce’s Dublin. His particular involvement in James Joyce is also reflected in Raidin the Wake, his “Finnegans Wake” reading group, and in the Boston Joyce Forum.
