5.“Joyce Studies in Italy” e “Piccola Biblioteca Joyciana”:

La Presidente ricorda all’assemblea dei soci che, dall’anno scorso,  nel corso della registrazione presso il Tribunale di Cassino, la proprietà della rivista annuale “Joyce Studies in Italy” è stata da lei attribuita a The James Joyce Italian Foundation.

Alla fine del 2017 è stato pubblicato dall’editore eaAnicia il n.19 di “JSI”, Joyce’s Fiction  and the New Rise of  the Novel, a cura di Franca Ruggieri. Il pdf del testo è stato pubblicato sul sito dell’associazione  e inviato per email ai singoli soci. Le copie a stampa possono essere acquistate contattando direttamente l’editore.

Il numero 20, “James Joyce: the Joys of Exile”, uscirà prima della fine del 2018. Presto sarà inviato un cfp a coloro che hanno partecipato all’XI Conference:  il 29 aprile 2018 è la deadline per inviare proposte di  testi da sottoporre al procedimento del peer-reviewing.

Minutes of The James Joyce Italian Foundation

The Annual Meeting

 

The annual meeting of the members of The James Joyce Italian Foundation took place at 4.30 pm on 2nd February 2018 at the Dipartimento di Lingue, Letterature e Culture Straniere, Università Roma Tre, Sala ‘Ignazio Ambrogio’, 2nd floor, Via del Valco di San Paolo, 19, 00146 Rome.

The meeting began after verifying that there was a quorum.

  1. Announcements and President’s report:

The President informed the meeting about the composition of the new Board elected in the course of the Extraordinary Meeting held on 13th September 2017: the two outgoing members, John McCourt (Università di Macerata) and Ira Torresi (Università di Bologna-Forlì) have been replaced by Pieter Bekker (University of Leeds) and Fabio Luppi (Università degli Studi Guglielmo Marconi). At the expiry of the three year mandate next year, a new Board will be elected in the course of the next annual James Joyce Italian Foundation Conference, to be held from Wednesday 30th January to Friday 1st February 2019. Last year there were 90 paid-up members of the JJIF, while today there are approximately 60. The names of the members, along with these minutes, will be posted soon on the JJIF website (https://thejamesjoyceitalianfoundation.wordpress.com/). Maria Domenica Mangialavori continues to be responsible for updating it.

 

  1. Approval of the 2017 budget:

Having distributed copies to those present, the 2017 budget was read aloud, noting income (membership fees) and outgoings. Apart from the official stamp duty and the bank account fees, there were expenses for visiting guests (in this case travel costs for the X Conference), the payment to Bulzoni publishers for Fritz Senn’s monograph for the ‘Piccola Biblioteca Joyciana’ (50 copies), the payment to eaANICIA publishers of ‘Joyce Studies in Italy’, no.18 (60 copies ), the payment to Edizioni Q publishers for extra copies of ‘ Joyce Studies in Italy’, nos. 16 and 17 (45 copies) and a late payment to the Manzoni Agency for the cost of the death notice of 22nd March 2016.

As of December 2017, the current account bank balance stands at €9,521.40. The President proposes a slight increase in membership fees, which have remained the same since 2006, the year when The James Joyce Italian Foundation was constituted: €70 for supporting members, €50 for institutions, €40 for full-time/tenured university and school staff and €30 for all non full-time staff of any kind. The meeting approves.

  1. 2017/18 Giorgio Melchiori Grant:

The Foundation received five applications for the two €500 Giorgio Melchiori Grants for 2017. These are reserved for younger JJIF members, but as the applicants were not officially enrolled as JJIF members, the applicants were not eligible and the grants were not awarded. As to the current year, 2018, the President’s proposal is approved as regards awarding two Giorgio Melchiori Grants of €300 (three hundred euros) to JJIF graduate students. This time the grant is aimed at helping young scholars to take part in the 26th International James Joyce Symposium, ‘The Art of James Joyce’, that will be held at the University of Antwerp’s Centre for Manuscript Genetics from 11th – 16th June 2018. The announcement will be published on the JJIF website soon and letters of application should be sent by 21st April 2018 to: joyce.foundation@uniroma3.it

  1. Events planned for 2018:

The President announces that there will be a call for papers before this coming summer for the XII James Joyce Birthday Conference in Rome, 30th January – 1st February (Wednesday–Friday) 2019. Notice will be given both online on the JJIF site and by emailing JJIF members directly. In the meantime, members are invited to suggest proposals for themes and titles before the end of May 2018.

  1. ‘Joyce Studies in Italy’ and ‘Piccola Biblioteca Joyciana’:

The members of the meeting are reminded of the fact that, last year, in the process of registering of the annual journal before the Court of Cassino, the President decided to attribute the property of ‘Joyce Studies in Italy’ to The James Joyce Italian Foundation.

At the end of 2017, the latest volume (no.19) of ‘Joyce Studies in Italy’, Joyce’s Fiction and the New Rise of the Novel, was published by the eaAnicia publishing house, edited by Franca Ruggieri. The pdf of the text was posted on the JJIF website and emailed to the individual authors of the essays as well as to all the members of JJIF. Printed copies can be purchased by directly contacting the publisher.

The next annual issue of ‘Joyce Studies in Italy’ will be published by the end of 2018 with the title James Joyce: the Joys of Exile. A call for papers will soon be forwarded to those who participated at the XI JJIF Conference: the deadline for sending revised papers to Joyce.foundation@uniuroma3.it is 29th April 2018 so that they can be submitted to the peer-review procedure.

After the 2017 publication of Fritz Senn’s Portals of Recovery, vol.14 of the ‘Piccola Biblioteca Joyciana’, a small collection of Joycean writings by Jacqueline Risset edited by Laura Santone will be published as vol.15 in the series.

6. Any other business:

There was no other business.

The meeting concluded at 5. 30 pm.

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.
