T.S. Eliot called Ulysses ‘the most important expression which the present age has found; … a book to which we are all indebted, and from which none of us can escape.’’ Indeed, after a century it is a book which is still read, discussed, translated, researched and which influences not only writers, but painters, musicians, philosophers, photographers, film directors.

We invite scholars and students from various fields to send proposals for a 15-minute paper with a creative approach towards any aspect of Joyce’s works.
