The Mapping Dubliners Project is a project featuring two interactive maps of all the locations and routes mentioned in James Joyce’s Dubliner. It began in 2010 and is updated regularly. The first map version was built in Google Maps. A second version was created shortly afterwards using the Google Maps “convert to Google Earth file” tool. Once in the Google Earth format, the information was edited and restructured to enable story-centric showing and hiding capabilities. The Google map is available online, and the Google Earth map is downloadable on the Google Earth version page. The blog is updated weekly and features a closer look at one place from the map, including its possible literary interpretations, historical info, and images.
All quoted text from Dubliners is from the Project Gutenberg text available here. Page numbers refer to the 1967 Modern Library edition.
In some cases, which are noted in the place descriptions, exact addresses are from Don Gifford, Joyce Annotated: Notes for Dubliners and A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (Berkeley: University of California Press, 1982). Maps from the online David Rumsey Collection provided information on contemporary buildings, bridges, streets, routes, and places in 19th-century Dublin.
The creator of this project, Jasmine Mulliken, received a PhD from the University of Texas at Austin in 2011 and is Visiting Assistant Professor of English at Oklahoma State University.
