The Art of James Joyce

The 26th International James Joyce Symposium

11–16 June 2018



Between 11 and 16 June 2018, the University of Antwerp’s Centre for Manuscript Genetics will host the 26th International James Joyce Symposium in the city that Joyce and his family visited in the summer of 1926. Belgium is small, so much so that all of the sites Joyce toured that year (Ostend, Bruges, Ghent, Brussels and, most importantly, Waterloo) are within a 100-kilometre radius of the conference venue.

(Wyndham Lewis, Blasting and Bombardiering, 1937)

The Evelyn Scott Society invites abstracts of 1-2 pages on the American writer Evelyn Scott
