joyce-logoCare socie e cari soci,

insieme agli auguri per le prossime ferie di agosto, vorrei darvi notizia di alcune iniziative, che riguardano la nostra associazione e in qualche caso chiedere il vostro parere.

1. La prossima James Joyce Birthday Graduate Conference si terrà nei giorni 6 e 7 febbraio 2014. Il tema generale proposto è “James Joyce e la sfida del realismo”. Il relativo call for papers, in corso di definizione, verrà messo in circolazione nei primi giorni di settembre. Anne Fogarty interverrà con una preliminary lecture. Nel centenario della pubblicazione di Dubliners un panel sarà dedicato ai racconti. Nel corso della conference verrà presentato il bando per la Giorgio Melchiori Grant.

2. Abbiamo ricevuto l’iscrizione del primo giovane socio sostenitore e una donazione di € 1000,00 da parte di un socio meno giovane.

3. Nel prossimo numero della rivista Joyce Studies in Italy, che sarà in uscita entro la fine di novembre, sarà riservato uno spazio alle recensioni delle pubblicazioni e riedizioni joyciane più recenti. Chiunque fosse interessato può contattarci a questi indirizzi di posta elettronica: enrico.terrinoni@unistrapg.itfranca.ruggieri@uniroma3.it

4. L’ultimo punto, al quale tengo particolarmente, è invece la richiesta del vostro consenso alla mia proposta di nominare Rosa Maria Bosinelli honorary member . Il vostro parere positivo fin da ora permetterebbe di annunciare la designazione nel corso della Graduate Conference e di inserire il nome di Rosa Maria come honorary member sul subscription form 2014.

Un caro saluto,
Franca Ruggieri
The James Joyce Italian Foundation

***********************************************************************************************************************************

joyce-logo Dear Members,

Along with my best wishes for the forthcoming holidays, I would like to pass on news of some events regarding our association and also to ask for your opinions on a certain matter.

1. The next James Joyce Birthday Graduate Conference will be held 6-7 February 2014 with the overall theme ‘James Joyce and the Challenge of Realism’. The call for papers is being drawn up at present and will be circulated at the beginning of September. Anne Fogarty will give a preliminary lecture and as this is the centenary of the publication of Dubliners, a panel will be dedicated to the stories. During the conference, applications for the Giorgio Melchiori Grant will be accepted; the application form will be attached to the call for papers.

2. We have recently received fees at the higher enrolment rate from the first young member in addition to a €1,000 donation from a not-so-young member.

3. In the next edition of the periodical Joyce Studies in Italy, published at the end of November, there will be the addition of various reviews of recent publications and new editions of Joyce. Contributions can be sent to the following e-mail addresses: enrico.terrinoni@unistrapg.it – franca.ruggieri@uniroma3.it

4. The final point, and the one which I feel most keenly about, is to ask you to sustain my proposal to nominate Rosa Maria Bosinelli as honorary member. Your agreement now would already allow us to make the announcement during the Graduate Conference and to add Rosa Maria’s name as honorary member on the 2014 subscription form.

With my very best wishes,
Franca Ruggieri
The James Joyce Italian Foundation

Jumping for Joyce: the world of James Joyce in London – 3 July – 25 September 2013

Posted by James Joyce Italian Foundation on 18/07/2013

Jumping for Joyce: Contemporary painters revel in the world of James Joyce

3 July – 25 September 2013

Francis Kyle Gallery – London

“Just as Joyce, always  a rebel, shamelessly plundered world literature and so much else in his  writings, believing there to be nothing new, so the artists in Jumping for Joyce have not felt obliged  to show reverence in shaping their own responses to so many aspects of his work”.

National Library Web Archiving Project

Posted by James Joyce Italian Foundation on 25/07/2012

This is the letter the National Library of Ireland sent to The James Joyce Italian Foundation in order to invite us to accept the proposal of being part of a list of websites which help the promotion of Irish cultural and literary heritage.

To whom it may concern

The mission of the National Library of Ireland is to collect, preserve, promote and make accessible the documentary and intellectual life of Ireland. Increasingly a huge amount of material of historical and cultural importance can only be found in digital form on websites. The Library is now facing the enormous challenge of how to collect and preserve websites of Irish interest for future generations.

We are embarking on a Web Archiving Project with the aim of archiving Irish websites of scholarly and cultural importance.

Your website has been identified by the Library for inclusion in this web archiving project. It will be part of a collection of various websites of Irish interest identified for inclusion by the National Library and made available through the Library’s website http://www.nli.ie. You can view a previous web archiving project relating to the General Election 2011 http://www.nli.ie/en/general-election-2011-web-archive.aspx.

We would be delighted if you felt that you could be part of this project, but if for some reason you do not wish to be part of it, please feel free to let us know. If we do not hear from you, your website will be included in the National Library’s Web Archive. The Library has a takedown policy with respect to archived websites which can be brought into effect during the lifetime of the project if required.

Yours sincerely
Siobhán O’Donovan
National Library of Ireland
