Farewell to Mariangela Tempera

Posted by James Joyce Italian Foundation on 09/01/2016

Mariangela Tempera, who sadly passed away on December 31, 2015, has been a member of The James Joyce Italian Foundation since its establishment. As a Shakespeare scholar, she was internationally known for her study of Shakespeare and the popular media, a field in which she conducted pioneering work, both in her writings and papers read at conferences throughout the world and in the work she did at the University of Ferrara.

Thanks to her tireless and intelligent activity as promoter and organiser of cultural initiatives, the University of Ferrara became, in a few years, one of the major sites for the study of Shakespeare in Italy, offering to young students opportunities to let themselves known in the field of Shakespeare studies, and to all scholars a conspicuous library and a peerless collection of films and videos of Shakespearean subject. We also owe her the institution, in Ferrara, of a Shakespeare Centre, a huge collection of films and videos of Shakespearean subject and the organization of yearly Conferences on the issue of “Shakespeare from text to scene” whose outcome was the publication of a series of prestigious volumes she personally edited.

She was also deeply interested in Joyce. Back in 1986 she was among the participants in one of the first Joyce meetings in Italian universities. “L’officina di Joyce” (Joyce’s Workshop, from the Epiphanies to Finnegans Wake) Pisa 31 January- 2 February. Her contribution to that conference is published in myriadmindedman, Jottings on Joyce (1986) ed. by Bosinelli, Pugliatti and Zacchi. It consisted in an original reading of the Circe episode. Her passion for collecting Shakespeare citations in contemporary media (films, TV programmes, advertisements etc.) included a similar research on Joyce as is evident in her paper “References to James Joyce in Films and Television: A Catalogue in Progress”, in the collection in honour of Rosa Maria Bollettieri Bosinelli A Joyceful of talkatalka from frienshapes (2011), ed by Baccolini, Chiaro, Rundle and Whitsitt. The catalogue will remain “in progress”, unfortunately, a Joycean title that sounds ironic in these days of mourning.

Those who had the chance of knowing Mariangela will deeply miss not only her competence and originality as a scholar, but also her bright intelligence, her irony, her sense of humour, her often unconventional manners, her lightness and her cheerfulness.

She was a passionate researcher and teacher, and a dear friend: she will be greatly missed.

Joyce, Yeats, and the Irish Revival. JJIF conference 2-3 February 2015 at Università ROMA TRE

Posted by James Joyce Italian Foundation on 14/01/2015

CelebraYting the year of Yeats (http://yeats2015.com/) on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of his birth, this year’s annual James Joyce Italian Foundation conference in Rome on 2-3 February is entitled “Joyce, Yeats, and the Revival”. The conference explore the complex connections between these two great figures of Irish and of World literature within the context of the Irish Literary Revival going well beyond the well-known anecdote involving the two writers which recounts that Yeats was already a well-established literary figure when, in October 1902, he met Joyce for the first time at the National Library. When, at the end of their exchange Joyce asked Yeats how old he was, he replied that he was 38 (he was actually 39) only to have Joyce retort: “I thought as much. I have met you too late. You are too old.”

jDefinitive program available here: JoyceRome15

Speakers from Italy, Ireland, Britain, Germany, Singapore, Turkey, Georgia, the United States, Brazil will gather in Rome.

Among the plenary speakers are Professor Matthew Campbell (University of York) and associate director of the Annual Yeats Summer School; Fritz Senn, Director of the Zurich James Joyce Foundation; Carla Marengo Vaglio (Università di Torino), as well as Erik Bindervoet and Robbert-Jan Henkes, the translators of Finnegans Wake into Dutch.
