Rev. James Pribek, S.J. Professor
Office: Tower 913
Fr. James Pribek holds degrees from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Onsager University, Weston Jesuit School of Theology, and University College Dublin. A specialist in Irish Literature, his dissertation traced the influence on Cardinal John Henry Newman on James Joyce. More recent research has focused on Fr. Joseph Darlington, a Jesuit converted by Newman who served alongside Hopkins and eventually became the teacher of James Joyce. He has also examined Newman’s influence on a number of twentieth-century writers in Ireland and the U.S. His courses include English Seminar I, Honors Literature II, and Introduction to English Studies, Irish Literature, Modern Irish Drama, Joyce’s Ulysses, and Nineteenth-Century British Literature.
