The James Joyce Italian Foundation invites proposals for the Fifteenth Annual Conference in Rome to celebrate Joyce’s 142th birthday.
2023 marks a hundred years since Joyce began working at his new post-Ulysses project, a “work in progress” which some regarded as the denial of his previous works. However, it can also be argued that he wrote one single oeuvre, beginning with “The Sisters” and ending with Finnegans Wake, and that all of his works are connected via an eternal and permanent transition. In this conference we will reflect on whether his stories and his books should be considered in isolation or as parts of a larger design.
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 The Conference will be the occasion to present unpublished papers and works in progress on Joyce to an international audience.
Related topics include, but are not limited to:
- Internal intertextuality in Joyce’s works
- Continuity and discontinuity in Joyce
- Passage, change, and transition
- Occurrences and reoccurrences in Joyce’s works
- Phases/Phrases of transitions in Joyce’s writing
- Translocutions; the evolution of language patterns in Joyce
- Recycling, borrowing and reusing
Please send an abstract (500 words maximum in length) along with a short narrative bio-sketch (300 words maximum in length NOT A CV!!!) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Send two separate Word files.
Selected papers will be published.
The Conference includes a Joyce birthday party.
Deadline for proposals: 13 November 2022
