The 2009 North American James Joyce Conference will be hosted by the
Department of English at the University at Buffalo-SUNY. The conference
will feature plenary addresses by Luca Crispi (National Library of Ireland
and University College, Dublin) and John Nash (Durham University); panels
on the Joyce collection at Buffalo, genetic studies of Joyce’s manuscripts
and avant-textes, theoretical innovations in Joyce studies, the literary
and cultural fields of modernism, and Joyce’s Irish contexts; a major
exhibit of items from the holdings of the James Joyce Collection at the
University Libraries; readings by novelist Colum McCann, a presentation on
and demonstration of archive collection conservation; and Buffalo’s 12th
annual Bloomsday celebration.
We welcome abstracts for individual papers and proposals for additional
panels on any Joyce-related topic, and particularly encourage submissions
that connect in some way to the James Joyce Collection at the University
Libraries. Abstracts for individual papers should be limited to 150-200
words, while completed panel proposals should not exceed 500 words. All
non-plenary papers or presentations are strictly limited to a maximum of 20
minutes. Participants are limited to presenting a paper on one panel only.
Submissions must include name, institutional affiliation or independent
scholar status, contact information, and a list of any audio/visual
equipment needed for your presentation.
