Cfp: James Joyce: The Joys of Exile – Rome, 1-2-3 February 2018

Posted by James Joyce Italian Foundation on 29/08/2017

The XI James Joyce Italian Foundation Conference in Rome

Conference Date: February 1-2-3, 2018
DEADLINE FOR ABSTRACTS: November 26, 2017

Keynote speakers:
Fritz Senn
Sam Slote
Gabriele Frasca

The James Joyce Italian Foundation invites proposals for the Eleventh Annual Conference in Rome. It will be hosted by the Department of Foreign Languages, Literatures and Cultures at the Università Roma Tre, to celebrate Joyce’s 136th birthday.

Exile is among the foremost theme’s in Joyce ouvre, but it also became an “arm” he allowed himself “to use”. From Dubliners to Finnegans Wake the “note of banishment” and exile resonates in so many ways that it would be difficult to imagine Joyce as a non-exilic subject.

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 The conference will be the occasion to present unpublished papers and works in progress on Joyce to an international audience.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:

– Exile as a narrative strategy in Joyce
– Joyce and exile in the literary canon
– Joyce and exile in the tradition of the Irish novel
– Joyce, Europe and Exile
– Joyce, Great Britain and Exile;
– Joyce, Celtic Countries and Exile.
– Joyce, Exile(s) and Drama
– Joyce among expatriates
– Silence, exile and cunning in Joyce’s works
– Joyce and the Irish diaspora
– Joyce as an Irish/European writer
– Joyce and emigration
– Joyce at home and abroad

Selected papers will be published. Please send abstracts, 250-500 words in length, along with a short bio-sketch to joyceconference@gmail.com
The Conference includes a Joycean birthday party.
Deadline for proposals: November 26, 2017.
Accepted speakers will be notified by December 15, 2017.

On arrival, participants will be expected to sign up for membership of The James Joyce Italian Foundation (Students: 25 Euro; Individual Membership: 35 Euro; Faculty: 50 Euro; supporting members : 70 euro).
Accepted speakers can apply for the Giorgio Melchiori Grant.

CFP: The X James Joyce Italian Foundation Conference in Rome – 1-2-3 February 2017

Posted by James Joyce Italian Foundation on 03/08/2016

Joyce’ Fiction and the new Rise of the Novel:
The X James Joyce Italian Foundation Conference in Rome

Conference Date: February 1-2-3, 2017
DEADLINE FOR ABSTRACTS: November 25, 2016

The James Joyce Italian Foundation invites proposals for the Tenth Annual Conference in Rome. It will be hosted by the Department of Foreign Languages, Literatures and Cultures at the Università Roma Tre, to celebrate Joyce’s 135th birthday.

Joyce famously described Ulysses as a “damned-monster novel”, a definition that could as well be applied also to his final anti-novel, Finnegans Wake. To a certain extent, it can be argued that all of his prose fiction, from the novellas of Dubliners onwards, is an attempt to stylistically and philosophically challenge the history and the tradition of realism and anti-realism in the novel in any of its multifarious forms.

Confirmed key note speaker: Finn Fordham    Royal Holloway University of London

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:
– Joyce and/vs the tradition of the English novel
– Joyce and/vs the tradition of the Irish novel
– Joyce and/vs the tradition of the European novel
– Joyce and/vs the tradition of the Italian novel
– The novel as autobiography: writing the self
– Joyce and the theory of the novel
– Joyce and the end of the novel
– Joyce’s anti-novels
– Joyce and the novels of the Revival
– Joyce and history
– Joyce, genetic studies and the novel
– Joyce’s novels in translation
– Joyce between realism, surrealism and hyperrealism
– Joyce: word and world
– Joyce between fiction and the real

Selected papers will be published. Please send abstracts, 250-500 words in length, along with a short bio-sketch to joyceconference@gmail.com
The Conference includes a Joycean birthday party.
Deadline for proposals: November 25, 2016.
Accepted speakers will be notified by December 15, 2016.

On arrival, participants will be expected to sign up for membership of The James Joyce Italian Foundation (Students: 25 Euro; Faculty: 35 Euro; supporting members : 70 euro).
