Organizers: The James Joyce Italian Foundation
The James Joyce Italian Foundation invites proposals for the Thirteenth Annual Conference in Rome. It will be hosted by the Department of Foreign Languages, Literatures and Cultures at the Università Roma Tre, to celebrate Joyce’s 138th birthday.
Otherness is a major feature of Joyce’s writing, in thematic, philosophical, aesthetic, political and linguistic terms. The Conference will reflect also on how other writers coming from different traditions appropriated or transfigured Joyce’s oeuvre, and how the Irish artist’s works resonate in their own writings.
We invite scholars to send proposals for a 20-minute contribution. The Conference will be the occasion to present unpublished papers and works in progress on Joyce to an international audience.
