James Joyce Research Colloquium

This international colloquium aims to provide a forum for the discussion of current and future developments in James Joyce Studies by leading Joyce scholars and to facilitate exchange about the challenges and problems of undertaking research on Joyce.

Speakers will also analyse and debate the usefulness of particular methodologies and theoretical positions for aspects of research projects that they have concluded or their applicability for works in progress. The delegates at the colloquium will include doctoral and post-doctoral students currently engaged in research on Joyce at universities around the world.

Close dialogue will be encouraged between all the participants to enable an open discussion about the present state of Joyce Studies and the possible trajectories that it should follow. A further purpose of this colloquium will be to explore possible collaborative links and partnerships between the UCD James Joyce Research Centre and Joyce Research centres and Joycean specialists in Europe, the US and elsewhere.

The opening lecture on Wednesday 16 April at 7.30, “Adventures with Ulysses: A Memoir” will be given by Professor Michael Groden to mark the occasion of the official inauguration of the UCD James Joyce Research Centre. It is open to colleagues across the university, the general public, and to Dublin Joyceans and Irish Studies specialists.

The speakers at the colloquium include: Professor Brian Caraher (Queen's University, Belfast), Dr Luca Crispi (University College Dublin), Professor Daniel Ferrer (Institut des Textes et Manuscrits Modernes, Paris), Professor Anne Fogarty (University College Dublin), Professor Hans Walter Gabler (University of Munich), Professor Michael Groden (University of Western Ontario), Professor Geert Lernout (University of Antwerp), Professor Vicki Mahaffey (University of York), Dr Emer Nolan (National University of Ireland, Maynooth), Professor Paul Saint-Amour (University of Pennsylvania), and Dr Sam Slote (Trinity College Dublin).
