While this study is concerned with the question
of technology in its relation to the work of
James Joyce and theories of hypertext, it is
also, and more specifically, addressed to a
concept of technology arising from the language
of Finnegans Wake. Drawing upon developments in
communication theory and information technology,
this study attempts to map a parallel development
in Joyce's uses of language in the Wake, arguing
that Joyce's writing provides a model for
re-thinking the relationship between technology
and "all forms of cultural production." The
purpose of this is not, however, to suggest that
Joyce was necessarily in some way cognisant of a
future possibility of hypertext, nor is it simply
concerned with a retrospective glance at Joyce
from the position of current computing
technologies. Rather, it is to examine how
Joyce's work is aware of its own position against
and within contemporary developments in the
sciences and electronic media, and that Joyce
incorporated material from these developments into his texts.

"Techne is an elaborate and passionate mapping of
the ways in which hypertext is, in fact, like
Joyce. In this respect it will be an essential
benchmark in Joyce scholarship, as seminal as the
work of Hugh Kenner in the 1950s and 1960s, which
also set the style and tone for a generation of Joyce criticism."
--Darren Tofts, author of Memory Trades

"The main purposes of Armand's important study
are primarily to 'trace the historical
development of communications technologies in the
context of Joyce's writing,' while secondarily
examining their effects on Joyce scholarship ...
throughout the book he presents an important new
understanding of the relationship of Joyce's work
to the evolution of hypertext from mechanization
and the new electric media ... I strongly
recommend this book for its rigorous and
illuminationg understanding of the importance of
technology to Joyce and for the understanding of
Joyce's affinities with major movements of the
first half of the twentieth century."
--Donald Theall, James Joyce Quarterly
