Minutes

of

the Extraordinary Annual Meeting

of

The James Joyce Italian Foundation

The extraordinary meeting of the members of The James Joyce Italian Foundation took place 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 first convocation was 26th September 2019 at 07.00 and the second 26th September 2019 at 14.00.

After verifying that there was a quorum, including proxies sent in by absent members, the meeting began with the following agenda:

1. Announcements and President’s report:

Franca Ruggieri, the President, welcomes and thanks members for their attendance. She then reads the recent message that Fritz Senn sent to Enrico Terrinoni, Serenella Zanotti and herself, telling us that he is regretfully giving up all his Joycean commitments. This includes summer schools and conferences, and so he will not take part in the Rome conference next February. Fritz adds that his decision has been made for entirely “personal and emotional reasons, following the most serious traumatic crisis of recent years”. The President and members all express their sorrow, as well as their utmost understanding and support. At the same time they express their deep honour to have him as a friend and colleague, and their gratitude to him for all the support that he has given The James Joyce Italian Foundation throughout the years. The President says that she has also received an email message from Pieter Bekker, who regrets to inform the Foundation that he is resigning from the Executive Committee. He also sends his proxy, authorizing the President to represent him and to vote on his behalf in the election of the Board, which is taking place at the present meeting. The President thanks him for his role on the Committee and for his kindness and generosity in serving the needs of the Foundation. Since the reformed rules of the Third Sector have not yet been published, the relative change to the Statute is to be postponed until the next Annual Meeting.

2. Elections to the Executive Committee:

At the last Annual meeting on 1st February 2019, the new roles of vice president and honorary president were introduced to the statute of the Foundation. The President therefore proposes to the meeting that Serenella Zanotti should be nominated vice president and Enrico Terrinoni president. Enrico Terrinoni accepts on the condition that Franca Ruggieri is appointed Honorary President. The meeting agrees, and voting is carried out by a show of hands. Unanimously, therefore, Serenella Zanotti is voted Vice President, Enrico Terrinoni President and Franca Ruggieri Honorary President. The meeting also votes unanimously by a show of hands for Roberto Baronti Marchiò and Jolanta Wawrzycka to become new members of the Executive Committee, taking the places of Franca Ruggieri and Pieter Bekker, and for Fabio Luppi to become Treasurer. The current Executive Committee therefore consists of Enrico Terrinoni (President), Serenella Zanotti (Vicepresident), Roberto Baronti Marchiò, Sonia Buttinelli, Fabio Luppi, Carla Vaglio Marengo, Jolanta Wawrzycka. The meeting votes for the seven members of the new Executive Committee by a show of hands and unanimously approves.

3. Any other business:

There is no other business

The meeting concludes at 15.30

Read and approved there and then.

Non potrà quindi partecipare al convegno di Roma il prossimo febbraio. Fritz aggiunge che la decisione è stata suggerita da “ragioni esclusivamente personali ed emotive, a seguito della crisi più seria e traumatica degli ultimi anni”. La Presidente e i soci esprimono tutto il loro rammarico per la sua assenza, come pure la loro comprensione e solidarietà per il suo stato di depressione. Allo stesso tempo dichiarano la propria gratitudine per l’onore della collaborazione di tutti questi anni con The James Joyce Italian Foudation. La Presidente dice anche di aver ricevuto un messaggio via email da Pieter Bekker, che, con rammarico, offre le proprie dimissioni dal Comitato Direttivo. Pieter invia anche una delega alla Presidente perché lo rappresenti e voti per suo conto nelle elezioni del Comitato che si terranno nel corso dell’incontro. La Presidente e i soci  lo ringraziano  per il ruolo da lui svolto nel Comitato e per la gentilezza e la generosità con cui  è venuto  incontro alle esigenze della Foundation. Dal momento che la riforma delle regole  del Terzo  Settore non è stata ancora pubblicata, le relative modifiche dello Statuto vengono rimandate alla prossima Assemblea Ordinaria Annuale.

2.  Elezioni del Comitato Direttivo:

Nell’ultima Assemblea Annuale  sono stati introdotti nello Statuto della Foundation  i nuovi ruoli di Vicepresidente e Presidente Onorario.

L’Assemblea vota anche all’unanimità per Roberto Baronti Marchiò e Jolanta Wawrzycka come nuovi membri  del Comitato Direttivo e per Fabio Luppi come Tesoriere.

L’attuale Comitato Direttivo è quindi così formato: Enrico Terrinoni (Presidente),  Roberto Baronti Marchiò, Sonia Buttinelli, Fabio Luppi, Carla Marengo Vaglio, Jolanta Wawrzycka, Serenella Zanotti. L’assemblea vota i sette membri del Comitato Direttivo per alzata di mano e approva all’unanimità.

The James Joyce Italian Foundation invites proposals for the Thirteenth 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 138th birthday.

Otherness is a major feature of Joyce’s writing, in thematic, philosophical, aesthetic, political and linguistic terms. The Conference will reflect also on how other writers coming from different traditions appropriated or transfigured Joyce’s oeuvre, and how the Irish artist’s works resonate in their own writings.

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 European literature

– Joyce and World literature

– Joyce’s reception across space and time

– Joyce’s radical intertextuality

– Joyce and Otherness

– Postcolonial Joyce

– Identity, othering and self-othering in Joyce

– Joyce, language and alterity

Selected papers will be published. In sending abstracts (500 words maximum in length), please attach also a short narrative bio-sketch (300 words maximum in length) to joyceconference@gmail.com. BOTH DOCUMENTS HAVE TO BE SUPPLIED IN WORD FORMAT.

The Conference includes a Joyce birthday party.

Deadline for proposals: November 24, 2019.

Accepted speakers will be notified no earlier than December 15, 2019.

On arrival, participants will be expected to sign up for membership of The James Joyce Italian Foundation (Students: 30 Euro; Individual Membership: 45 Euro; Institutions: 50 Euro; Supporting members: 70 euro).

Verbali – Minutes 2019

Cari amici e colleghi,

nell’Assemblea Annuale del 1 febbraio scorso sono stati commessi alcuni errori di procedura, che hanno reso necessaria una revisione del testo del verbale ai punti 1, 3, 8. Vi allego quindi l’ultima versione corretta, che sottopongo alla vostra approvazione. A breve vi sarà data comunicazione della convocazione della prossima Assemblea Straordinaria, che dovrà formalizzare la richiesta dello SDI e le previste modifiche dello Statuto.

Cordiali saluti,

Franca Ruggieri

The James Joyce Italian Foundation

Verbale

dell’Assemblea Annuale Ordinaria

di

The James Joyce Italian Foundation

L’assemblea annuale ordinaria dei soci di The James Joyce Italian Foundation, convocata presso i locali del Dipartimento di Lingue, Letterature e Culture Straniere dell’Università Roma Tre, Sala “Ignazio Ambrogio”, II piano, Via del Valco di San Paolo, 19, 00146 Roma, in prima convocazione per il giorno 31 gennaio. 2019, alle ore 8, ed in seconda convocazione per il giorno 1 febbraio 2019, alle ore 13,00 presso gli stessi locali del Dipartimento di Lingue, Letterature e Culture Straniere dell’Università Roma Tre, si è svolta, dopo la verifica del numero legale, con il seguente ordine del giorno:

1. Comunicazioni e relazione della Presidente

La Presidente, Franca Ruggieri, saluta l’Assemblea e ringrazia della partecipazione. Informa quindi dello stato attuale delle iscrizioni che conferma   essere lo stesso dell’anno scorso, giorni della XI Conference. Alla fine del 2018 i soci regolarmente iscritti erano 90, mentre sono 65 all’inizio di quest’anno.  I nomi dei soci verranno pubblicati al più presto, unitamente a questo verbale, sul sito di The James Joyce Italian Foundation (https://thejamesjoyceitalianfoundation.wordpress.com/). Responsabile dell’aggiornamento del sito è ancora Maria Domenica Mangialavori, che  viene  ringraziata per il lavoro svolto.  La Presidente riferisce che le novità apportate dalla Riforma del Terzo Settore renderanno a breve necessario convocare un’altra assemblea per apportare le modifiche statutarie necessarie per l’adeguamento alla nuova normativa.

In merito all’introduzione del sistema di fatturazione elettronica si rende necessario attivarsi per poter accedere ai flussi passivi di fatturazione disponibili nel Sistema di Interscambio dell’Agenzia delle Entrate. A tal fine occorrerà innanzitutto dotare l’Associazione di un indirizzo PEC per la ricezione delle fatture elettroniche intestate a The James Joyce Italian Foundation e depositate presso l’Ufficio delle Entrate, e poi dotare l’Associazione di un accesso diretto allo SDI anche delegando lo Studio tributario che cura la redazione del rendiconto e gli altri aspetti fiscali e civilistici dell’Associazione.

2. Approvazione del rendiconto 2018

Dopo aver distribuito copie del rendiconto del 2018 ai presenti, ne vengono illustrate le entrate (quote associative) e le uscite. Va tenuto presente che l’anno scorso un significativo contributo alle spese sostenute per l’organizzazione della XI conference è venuto dai fondi residui di ricerca messi da parte negli anni passati dalla Presidente. A partire da questo anno JJIF dovrà affrontare da sola i costi di tutte le iniziative. Oltre alle tasse governative e bancarie, per il 2018 le uscite sono quelle che riguardano il pagamento della consulenza amministrativa, un contributo per le spese di ospitalità per la XI Conference, il pagamento all’editore ea Aniciaper il n.19 di “JoyceStudies in Italy” (60 copie, 503,00), Joyce’s Fiction and the New Rise of the Novel.  A fine dicembre 2018 il saldo del conto corrente bancario è stato € 10.459,77.

3.  Proposta di modifica di statuto

La Presidente propone al parere dell’Assemblea che unitamente alla modifiche di Statuto che si rendono necessarie per adeguarsi alla nuova normativa del Terzo Settore vengano introdotte nello statuto dell’associazione la carica di vicepresidente e di presidente onorario, per promuovere una più efficiente organizzazione del lavoro. L’Assemblea approva rimandando ad una nuova assemblea la modifica dello Statuto.

4. James Joyce Open Letter – request for acknowledgement

La presidente Franca Ruggieri informa l’Assemblea del dibattito in corso a proposito della “James Joyce Open Letter”, inviata a tutte le associazioni joyciane e anche alla nostra Foundation, per denunciare i frequenti atti di molestie e abusi psicologici e sessuali in atto nelle comunità joyciane. La lettera è stata messa a disposizione di tutti i soci fin dal momento dell’arrivo all’indirizzo di email di JJIF. La Presidente ha inviato una breve risposta il 19 dicembre 2018, esprimendo la propria solidarietà anche a nome della Foundation e impegnandosi a proporne la discussione nel corso dell’Assemblea annuale della JJIF. Segue un ampio dibattito con numerosi interventi, da cui si profilano posizioni a volte problematiche, ma tutte concordi nel dichiarare la piena condanna di qualsiasi comportamento sessista e di chiunque se ne rendesse responsabile e allo stesso tempo  nell’affermare che, a nostra conoscenza, niente del genere è accaduto nella nostra piccola associazione  nel corso degli eventi da noi organizzati.  L’Assemblea affida quindi alla Presidente il compito di rispondere alla “James Joyce Open Letter” per confermare la solidarietà di JJIF, riferire sulla discussione avvenuta durante l’Assemblea e fare riferimento, al Codice Etico dell’Università Roma Tre, che è sede di JJIF.

5. Giorgio Melchiori Grant 2018/19    

 La commissione –  composta da Enrico Terrinoni, Serenella Zanotti e Maria Domenica Mangialavori –  ha assegnato i due Giorgio Melchiori Grant 2018 di €300 l’uno a Michele Sara Chinitz (Graduate Center, CUNY) e a Sara Spanghero (Georg August Universität, Göttingen).  Per Giorgio Melchiori Grant 2019 l’associazione ha ricevuto sette domande, presentate da: Arianna Autieri, Niels Caul, Fedya Daas, Mary Lawton, Katharina Rajabi, Maria Elisa Salemi, Alberto Tondello. Dopo aver verificato che solo tre concorrenti avevano i requisiti per partecipare alla selezione, la commissione, composta da Franca Ruggieri, Enrico Terrinoni, Serenella Zanotti, ha assegnato i due Giorgio Melchiori Grant 2019 a Arianna Autieri (University of Warwick) e a Alberto Tondello (University College London). I relativi verbali sono stati pubblicati sul sito di The James Joyce Italian Foundation  (https://thejamesjoyceitalianfoundation.wordpress.com/).

6. Programmazione attività 2019

La Presidente dichiara che prima dell’estate verrà formulato un call for papers per la XIII James Joyce Birthday Conference, che si terrà a Roma dal 29 al 31 gennaio 2020. I soci sono invitati a suggerire temi e titoli prima della fine di maggio 2019.  Roberto Baronti propone due titoli: “Joyce’s Spaces”, sul tema dello spazio e “Joyce and the other Arts”, sul rapporto reale e metaforico con le arti.  Il primo, “Joyce’s Spaces”, affronta il tema variegato dello spazio e della morfologia dello spazio, perché “be it urban, geographic, stellar, geometrical, or optical” – lo spazio, nelle parole di Valerie Benéjam, è “a central and idiosyncratic feature” of Joyce’s work”. Il secondo tema suggerito, “Joyce and the other Arts”, potrebbe costituire l’occasione per lo studio sistematico di un rapporto complesso, a tutt’oggi assente.

  Il bando per Giorgio Melchiori Grant 2020 sarà pubblicato subito dopo la pausa estiva 2019: sarà riservato ai più giovani membri regolarmente iscritti a JJIF per promuovere la loro partecipazione alla XIII JJIF Conference in Rome.

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

Alla fine del 2018 è stato pubblicato dall’editore eaAnicia il n.20 di “JSI”, James Joyce The Joys of Exile, n.20 (2018)a cura di Franca Ruggieri. Il pdf del testo è sul sito dell’associazione ed è stato inviato per email a tutti i soci.  Gli autori possono ricevere una copia cartacea, ritirandola personalmente presso la sede di JJIF, oppure, se residenti in Italia, la copia di JSI 20 sarà loro spedita come “piego di libri”. Le copie a stampa possono comunque essere acquistate dall’Italia e dall’estero contattando direttamente l’editore.   Presto sarà inviato un cfp a coloro che hanno partecipato alla XII Conference: il 29 aprile 2019 è la deadline  suggerita per inviare a Serenella Zanotti, curatrice del n.21 di JSI, proposte di  testi da sottoporre al procedimento del peer-reviewing.

Il numero 15 della “Piccola Biblioteca Joyciana”, dedicato agli scritti joyciani di Jacqueline Risset, a cura di Laura Santone, è in uscita presso Bulzoni. In considerazione degli impegni di cui JJIF si fa carico, gli autori e curatori della collana sono invitati a concordare con l’editore Bulzoni l’acquisto di un certo numero di copie, che possa coprire le spese della stampa. In preparazione sono anche un contributo di Marco Camerani su Joyce e Svevo (L’umorismo del quotidiano nell’Ulysses e nella Coscienzavdi Zeno)  e uno di Annalisa Federici sugli anni di Joyce a Parigi nelle riviste e nelle memorie contemporanee di altri esuli ed emigrati.

8. Rinnovo delle cariche sociali

Dopo aver verificato la presenza del numero legale, aggiungendo al numero dei presenti quello delle deleghe inviate dai soci assenti, la presidente apre la discussione e dichiara di voler lasciare il proprio incarico. L’incarico verrà lasciato solo dopo aver portato a termine l’Adeguamento dello Statuto di cui al precedente punto 3.  La Presidente propone già da adesso all’Assemblea la candidatura di Serenella Zanotti come vicepresidente e di Enrico Terrinoni come presidente. Enrico Terrinoni dà la sua disponibilità a condizione che Franca Ruggieri venga designata Presidente Onorario. L’Assemblea si dichiara d’accordo rinviando alla futura Assemblea, nella quale verrà approvato il nuovo statuto e nella quale verranno introdotte le nuove cariche di vicepresidente e di presidente onorario, la nomina effettiva del vicepresidente e del Presidente Onorario e nella quale verranno convalidate le dimissioni dell’attuale Presidente e la nomina del nuovo. L’Assemblea propone la candidatura di Jolanta Wawrzycka come membro del Comitato Direttivo e di Fabio Luppi come Tesoriere.

Roma 5 aprile 2019

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Some inaccuracies in procedure during the Annual Meeting of 1st February 2019 have made it necessary to review points 1, 3 and 8 in the written minutes. I attach here the most recent corrected version, which I now put forward for your approval. In a short while, the date will be announced for the forthcoming Extraordinary Meeting, during which the data interchange network request and the subsequent modification of the statute will be formalized.

With my best wishes,

Franca Ruggieri

The James Joyce Italian Foundation

Minutes

of the Ordinary Annual Meeting

of

The James Joyce Italian Foundation

The annual meeting of the members of The James Joyce Italian Foundation took place 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 first convocation was for 31st January 2019 at 08.00 and the second for 1st February 2019 at 13.00.

After verifying that there was a quorum, the meeting began with the following agenda:

1. Announcements and President’s report

Franca Ruggieri, the President, welcomed and thanked members for their attendance. She gave news regarding the current number of enrolments and confirmed that it is the same as it was a year ago during the XI Conference. By the end of 2018 there were 90 paid-up members, while there are 65 at the beginning of this year. The names of members will be published as soon as possible, along with the present minutes, on The James Joyce Italian Foundation website (https://thejamesjoyceitalianfoundation.wordpress.com/). Maria Domenica Mangialavori will continue the task of updating our site, and for this she deserves our thanks. The President outlines the changes implied by the Reform of the Third Sector. This means convening another meeting to make the necessary modifications to the statute in line with the new regulations. The new electronic invoicing system needs to be activated so that access can be made to the passive invoice system available through the data interchange network of the national Tax Office. For this reason, the association first needs to obtain a PEC address in order to receive electronic invoices sent to The James Joyce Italian Foundation, and registered with the Italian Tax Office. The association must then have direct access to this network, also providing this link to the accountancy office that is responsible for the drawing up of the balance sheet and other fiscal and legal matters regarding the association.

2. Approval of the 2018 budget

Having distributed copies to all present, the 2018 budget was read, noting income (membership fees) and outgoings. It was emphasized that a large part of the expenses required to organize the XI Conference was provided by research funds that the President had left over from previous years. From this year on, the JJIF alone must take on the costs of all events and initiatives. Apart from government taxes and bank charges, outgoings in 2018 concerned the payment of an administrative consultant, a contribution to hospitality expenses for the XI Conference and eaAnicia publishers for“JoyceStudies in Italy” no. 19, Joyce’s Fiction and the New Rise of the Novel (60 copies, €503.00). At the end of December 2018, the amount in the current account stood at €10,459.77.

3. Proposal for modifying the statute

The President proposed that at the meeting when the statute is modified –  i.e., to conform to the new Third Sector regulations  –  two new posts of Vice President and Honorary President are also introduced, thus saving time and effort. Members approve, and so the changes will be made to the statute at the next meeting.

4. James Joyce Open Letter – request for acknowledgement

The President, Franca Ruggieri, informed the meeting of the current discussion regarding the James Joyce Open Letter that has been sent to all Joycean associations, including our own Foundation. This condemns the frequency of sexual and psychological harassment and abuse in Joycean circles. The letter had been made available to all members when it first arrived at the JJIF email address. Indeed, the President sent a short reply on 19th December 2018, expressing her solidarity, also on behalf of the Foundation, and stating that the matter would be discussed at the JJIF annual meeting. Various members then contributed to the ensuing discussion and problematic issues and different arguments were raised. However, all were in agreement in fully condemning any sexist behaviour, and anyone behaving in such a manner, although, to our knowledge, nothing of the kind has occurred during any of the events organized by our own small association. The meeting thus entrusted the President with the task of replying to the James Joyce Open Letter in order to confirm the solidarity of the JJIF, report on the discussion that took place during the meeting, and to refer to the Code of Ethics of the University of Roma Tre, where the JJIF is based.

5. The Giorgio Melchiori Grant 2018/19

The commission – composed of Enrico Terrinoni, Serenella Zanotti and Maria Domenica Mangialavori – assigned the two 2018 Giorgio Melchiori Grants of €300 each to Michele Sara Chinitz (Graduate Center, CUNY) and to Sara Spanghero (Georg August Universität, Göttingen). The association received seven applications for the 2019 Giorgio Melchiori Grant. These were from: Arianna Autieri, Niels Caul, Fedya Daas, Mary Lawton, Katharina Rajabi, Maria Elisa Salemi and Alberto Tondello. After verifying that just three of the candidates had the requisites to take part in the selection, the commission, composed of Franca Ruggieri, Enrico Terrinoni and Serenella Zanotti, assigned the two Giorgio Melchiori Grants of 2019 to Arianna Autieri (University of Warwick) and to Alberto Tondello (University College London). The relative minutes have been published on the website of The James Joyce Italian Foundation (https://thejamesjoyceitalianfoundation.wordpress.com/).

6. Events planned for 2019

The President announced that there would be a call for papers prior to this coming summer for the XIII James Joyce Birthday Conference in Rome, 29th–31st January 2020. Members are invited to suggest proposals for themes and titles before the end of May 2019. Roberto Baronti proposed two titles:  “Joyce’s Spaces”, focusing on the theme of space, and “Joyce and the other Arts”, examining the metaphorical link with the arts.  The first, “Joyce’s Spaces”, would cover  the multifaceted theme of space, and the morphology of space, since, “be it urban, geographic, stellar, geometrical, or optical” – space is, inn Valerie Benéjam’s words “a central and idiosyncratic feature” of Joyce’s work”. The second topic suggested,”Joyce and the other Arts”, would provide the opportunity for the systematic study of a complex relationship that has hitherto been lacking.

The announcement for the Giorgio Melchiori Grant 2020 will be made immediately after the 2019 summer break. It will be reserved exclusively for younger, regularly enrolled members of the JJIF to facilitate their taking part in the XIII JJIF Conference in Rome.

7.“Joyce Studies in Italy” and the “Piccola Biblioteca Joyciana”

At the end of 2018, the eaAnicia publishing house brought out JSI no. 20, James Joyce, The Joys of Exile (2018)edited by Franca Ruggieri. The pdf of the text is on the Foundation website and was also sent to all members by email. Authors can receive a hard copy by collecting it in person from the offices of the JJIF, or, if they reside in Italy, their copy of JSI 20 can be sent to them by the special piego di libri postage service. Printed copies can also be bought both from within Italy and from abroad by contacting the publisher directly. A call for papers will soon be sent to those who took part in the XII Conference: 29th April is the deadline by which proposals for papers should reach Serenella Zanotti, editor of JSI no. 21, for peer review.

Number 15 of the “Piccola Biblioteca Joyciana”, dedicated to Jacqueline Risset’s writings on Joyce and edited by Laura Santone, is about to be published by Bulzoni. Given the numerous work undertaken by the JJIF, the authors and editors of the series are asked to confer with Bulzoni as to the number of copies to be purchased in order to cover printing costs. Also in preparation is a work by Marco Camerani on Joyce and Svevo (L’umorismo del quotidiano nell’Ulysses e nella Coscienza di Zeno) and one by Annalisa Federici on Joyce’s years in Paris seen through contemporary magazines and the memories of other exiles and emigrants.

8. Confirmation of the executive committee

Having verified that there was a quorum, including proxies sent in by absent members, the President opened the discussion by stating that she wished to stand down as president. She will leave her post only after the statute has been modified as laid out in point 3. The President proposes the candidacy of Serenella Zanotti as Vice President and Enrico Terrinoni as President. Enrico Terrinoni agrees on the condition that Franca Ruggieri becomes Honorary President. The meeting agrees, leaving its formal approval until the next meeting, which will thus both modify the statute and introduce the new posts of Vice President and Honorary President, as well as formally deciding who will effectively cover these roles. At the same time, the resignation of the current president will be confirmed, and the new president appointed. The meeting proposes the candidacy of Jolanta Wawrzycka as member of the management committee and of Fabio Luppi as Treasurer.

9. Any other business

– Linguistic approaches to Joyce’s writing
– Corpus stylistics and Joyce’s oeuvre

Key note speakers will be confirmed in September.

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, 2018.

Accepted speakers will be notified by December 16, 2018.

On arrival, participants will be expected to sign up for membership of The James Joyce Italian Foundation (Students: 30 Euro; Individual Membership: 45 Euro; Institutions: 50 Euro; Supporting members: 70 euro).

Bloomsday 2018 Genova

Posted by James Joyce Italian Foundation on 10/06/2018

BLOOMSDAY Genova
dalle 9 alle 24 sabato 16 GIUGNO 2018
Lettura dell’Ulisse di James Joyce nel Centro Storico

Per il tredicesimo anno consecutivo il 16 giugno 2018 il Centro storico di Genova ospita le peregrinazioni di Leopold Bloom, protagonista dell’Ulisse di James Joyce, e dei comprimari Stephen Dedalus, studente, e Molly Bloom, cantante adultera: Ulisse, Telemaco, Penelope. L’evento è realizzato da decine di volontari che animano i diciotto episodi dall’alba a mezzanotte in luoghi corrispondenti a quelli dublinesi, dalla Torre di Stephen (si pronuncia /stiven/!) alla camera da letto di Molly (passando da osterie, biblioteche, aule, cimiteri, strade e lupanari). E’ un’occasione unica di confrontarsi in tempo reale col capolavoro più umano del Novecento e di scoprire una Genova nota e ignota, che il 16 giugno, Bloomsday, si sovrappone a Dublino e a tutte le città (e i mari) del mondo.

Conference Glossary of Exile

Posted by James Joyce Italian Foundation on 25/05/2018

A Report on The XI James Joyce Italian Foundation Conference, Rome, 31 January – 2 February 2018

Mina M. Đurić – Faculty of Philology -University of Belgrade

 

An amazing privilege to participate in The XI James Joyce Italian Foundation Conference in Rome – “James Joyce: The Joys of Exile” and an opportunity to summarize participating researches’ main ideas, presented in many rich papers and through lively discussions afterwards, opened the question about possibility of the lexicon project regarding the problems of exile in Joyce’s works. Interesting interdisciplinary approaches and interpretations of Joyce’s exile were presented during the Conference, from the perspectives of literary theory, philosophy, linguistics, geopolitics and many other fields. These intersecting perceptions provided various options for (re)creating some (re)newed terms for a conceivable James Joyce Conference Glossary of Exile, remembering this Joycean meeting, which certainly expanded the theory of exile into undiscovered hermeneutic horizons.

Art as exile

During the official opening of The Eleventh Annual James Joyce Conference in Rome, the introductory note “James Joyce: The Joys of Exile” by Franca Ruggieri, President of The James Joyce Italian Foundation, provided the framework for understanding art and literature as an exile, especially in the occurrences of the 20th century. This phenomenological reading of “exile”, through its metamorphoses from Homer and the Bible, via the histories of migrations among many cultures, to very recent situations, was based on important texts about this subject: Adorno’s Minima moralia, Said’s Reflections on Exile and Representations of the Intellectual and Cixous’s The Exile of James Joyce, reaching valuable conclusions in the perception of Joyce’s work as an exile, and Joycean writing as exilic self-expression, where homeland is a universe of intertextuality. In his illuminating welcome speech, Giorgio de Marchis, Head of Dipartimento di Lingue, Letterature e Culture Straniere, Università Roma Tre, marked the (im)possibilities of Joyce’s readings Pessoa, which can be interpreted as part of the exilic, unreal, or parallel literary history, particularly when literature is also viewed as an historical exile.

Context of exilic aesthetics

In the presentation “James Joyce and the Exilic French Imagination: A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and the Development of an Aesthetics of Exile” by Jessie Alperin (Kenyon College), French Symbolist critical and poetical thoughts were examined as exilic influences in the development of the young artist and silent voice of French literary aesthetics behind the text of Joyce’s novel A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.

Exile as metaphor and trope 

The paper by Jolanta Wawrzycka (Radford University), “‘The fringe of his line’: Metaphors of Exile in Joyce”, analysed the exilic discourse of Joyce’s characters, marked from poststructuralist and postcolonial perspectives of understanding the rhetorical and the poetical constructs of exile as problems of identity and its cultural determinism through the space between alienation of a certain place to the limitlessness of the inner exile. In his research “Marginality and Exile in A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man”, Muhammad Ajmal (Heidelberg University) presented the differences and some innovations in the narrative forms of A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, these being dictated by metaphors of psychological exile as an artistic escape from certain roles in society.

Exile in ontology of translation

In his paper “The Phantom Yes”, one of the main plenary speakers, Sam Slote (Trinity College Dublin) tackled the problems of translation as fictionalization of the text, and also focused on the editorial multiplications and textual transmissions of the relevant sign at the very end of the “Ithaca” episode in several translations, variations in new editions. In these, mistranspositions of the final “Ithaca” sign (as opposed to manuscript clarification), often changed the point of the episode. Posing the questions: if Derrida’s “qui” is always Joyce’s “yes”, how the text is retranslable when it is once translated and investigating some translation differences between English Ulysses and French Ulysse, Slote detected and, through the concepts of Walter Benjamin and Paul de Man, interpreted the translational displacements of a few more phantom yesses in the French translation of Ulysses and Derrida’s Ulysse gramophone.

Exile into new libraries

After the panels and plenaries on the first day of the Conference, the presentation of some recent publications on James Joyce was excellently organized and delivered by Franca Ruggieri, Jolanta Wawrzycka, Giuliana Bendelli, Francesca Romana Paci and Enrico Terrinoni. Among the presented books were Joyce’s Fiction and the New Rise of the Novel (Joyce Studies in Italy 19), Reading Joycean Temporalities (European Joyce Studies 27), Leggere l’Ulisse di Joyce, four volumes of Italian translation of the first and the second book of Finnegans Wake and an Italian translation of Joyce’s Pomes Penyeach, which made a really enjoyable “exile” into the new library at the Joycean Conference in Rome.

Exile through world literature

In comparison to many other (un)voluntarily expatriates in world literature, the research by Preethi Sreenivasan (Indian Institute of Technology) “Modernity, the problem of Tradition and writerly Exile; a comparative study of James Joyce and Perumal Murugan” analysed the crisis of modernity and modern masculinity in the narrative structure of exile through understanding various interpretations of culture under imperialistic circumstances, especially in transit from local via global to exiled, relating to the literary parallels of Irish and Indian modernity in the works of James Joyce and Perumal Murugan. The paper “Canon in Exile: James Joyce and Serbian Literature” by Mina Đurić (University of Belgrade) examined the creative reception of James Joyce’s opus in the works of Serbian authors, as poetic exile from the traditional canon, through the processes of the literary modernization, in the context of world literature studies.

Exilic intertextuality

The paper “Trieste-Zurich-Paris-Galway: Reading for ‘Proteus’ at Home and Abroad” by Ronan Crowley (University of Antwerp) discovered some elements of James Hardiman’s pretext in several images of the “Proteus” episode in Ulysses and in Finnegans Wake, showing the importance of exilic intertextuality and its transformation into narrative form, from some of Joyce’s readings and translations in 1912, through finalizing “Proteus” in 1917, to the time of work on Finnegans Wake in 1927.

 Expatriates in history and cultures

The paper “Being Expats Together: Joyce in Expatriate Little Magazines and Autobiographies” by Annalisa Federici (University of Rome “Sapienza”/University of Viterbo “Tuscia”) explained the poetic situation of exiles in the cosmopolity and cosmopolitism of expatriates in Parisian readings of Dublian universe in critical texts of Joycean early reception through the voices of the community of contemporaries in international literary journals. Francesco Marzano (Catholic University of the “Sacred Heart”) in the proposal “Joyce and Svevo: Mirror Portraits of Two Exiles” examined problems of the exile in the intellectual discussions between Svevo and Joyce and their writings. The paper “The British and Roman Empires, Judaism, and the History of Language in Joyce’s ‘Aeolus’” by Patrick Mullen (Queen’s University) analysed parallels between Irish and Jewish, Parnell and Moses, and British and Roman, through the history of language as the space of conflicts.

Fictionalization of the exile in other media

 After the panels and plenary on the second Conference day, in a multi-mediated experiment “Segni e disegni colorati in Finnegans Wake, raffigurazioni” the painter Paolo Colombo presented visual evocations: metamorphoses of graphic communications from numerous sciences and linguistic transformations in many cultures through the history of letters and signs, as the main concept of Joycean writing in progress and an original example of the fictionalization of Joycean exile into new mediagraphy.

Figures of exile

In his lecture “‘There were men there – and also women’: Locating the Women in Joyce’s Exiles”, Andrew Goodspeed (South East European University of Tetovo) described tensions in Exiles from the perspective of the exiled and excluded figures of women in the play, where this reading, without constituting a full feminist approach, showed the possibilities of reaching coherence in Joyce’s drama.

Genre of exile

In her paper “Exile(s) in drama and in life”, Giuliana Bendelli (Catholic University of the “Sacred Heart”) interpreted the characteristics of a suitable genre for the problems of exile, explaining why the literary form of the drama as the appropriate structure for the tension between exilic forces in the personal life of the artist and the necessity for impersonality in the text situated Joyce’s Exiles in the essential position for this type of discussion.

Heterotopic exile

Through Foucault’s explanation of heterotopia, the research “Heterotopias as Exile: a Reading of James Joyce’s Dubliners” by Edvige Pucciarelli (University of Bergamo) described the experience of writing an exile as a privileged occasion for the heterotopic transgression between different cultures.

Intermediations of exile

In her multi-mediated presentation “Joyce as Madam Butterfly: exiles in their own country”, Carla Marengo Vaglio (University of Turin) offered the relation between exilic conditions in Joyce’s works and Puccini’s famous piece. With examples from letter and novels, this analysis also focused on identity constructed from the exile and the ways of researching eloquent silence in text and music. The research “‘Cyclops’ as a Hologram of Exile” by Taura Napier (Wingate University) illustrated a verbal and hologramic “portrait of exile” through the parallax of space, time and displacement of the writer in the “Cyclops” episode. In the proposal “The Joys of Disabled Internal Exile in Finnegans Wake”, Johnnie Morey (Royal Holloway, University of London) investigated the textuality of Finnegans Wake in the intermediate connection between the inner exile of a disabled, dysmorphic subject, deformity of language and “disable”, exilic tonal music in the dodecaphony of Joyce’s novel.

Lexicography of exile

In his paper “Lexical Exile”, through the strategy of multiple and trans-translational close readings, Conference plenary speaker Fritz Senn (Zurich James Joyce Foundation) offered the term “lexile”, defining it especially in “the dislocutions” of things and words in translations of Ulysses. In the exilic simultaneity of Greek and Latin names of Odysseus in its transition through the title of Joyce’s novel, as well as in examples of words with “pt”, or in Joyce’s written diaspora of some exiled letters and in much more valuable examples from Ulysses, this rich presentation argued about ways of misplacement total (un)translatability.

Narrative strategies of exile

Discussion about the typology of the narrative strategies of exile, escape, exile at home, alienation in language from Dubliners, over A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man to Ulysses was announced by Manana Gelashvili (Ivane Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University) in her proposal “Exile as a Theme and a Narrative Strategy”. In the presentation “In the Wake of Trauma: Exploring Exilic Identity Through James Joyce’s Evasion of Narrative Fetishism”, Laura Gibbs (Goldsmiths College, University of London) questioned the narrative fetishism of Finnegans Wake’s totality from the psychological perspectives of trauma, in order to present textual recovery as (im)possible fragmental coherency of repairing fractured-identity. While Rebecca M. Lynch (Radford University) discussed components of exile in the narrative gnomonic structure in Dubliners, also from the position of trauma theory, in the paper “Dublin Through the Looking-Glass: An Analysis of ‘Eveline’ and ‘The Sisters’”, Lawrence Wang (University of Essex) tried to detect elements of queer narrativity in structure of Finnegans Wake in the research “‘It am queery!’: the Queer Failures of Exile in Finnegans Wake”. In her speech “Silence and Cunning: the Irish Exile’s Postcreative Immortality in ‘Oxen of the Sun’”, Ioana Zirra (University of Bucharest) problematized narrative exile, its mechanics and inversions, through “the postcreative reasons”, between silence and cunning from Dubliners to Finnegans Wake.

Returning through exile

In his paper “Exisle: the angst of return/Exisle: l’angoscia del ritorno”, through the interpretations of connections between Joyce and Dante, “Penelope” as code in Ulysses, theories raised by Daedalus, and an examination of the line between fiction and biography in the works of James Joyce, Gabriele Frasca (University of Salerno), one of the plenary speakers at the Conference, problematized exile situations in language and the impossibility of total escape, where it seems that the absolute is just an escape with no return, but also always problematic in its polemical context from the perspective of multi-directional Finnegans Wake.

Stylistics of exile

In her research “Style in exile. The exile of style. Giacomo Joyce”, Lia Guerra (University of Pavia) considered Giacomo Joyce as exiled artistic experience from Joyce’s style and genre experiments and the visuality of writing style in this text (especially in examples of connections between the body and the world or the hunting theme in Joyce’s early works) as a sort of exile of other arts forming web of new styles in the literary text. The paper “Corpus Stylistics and A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man: reading images of exiles” by Chiara Sciarrino (University of Palermo) questioned how data on exile of the corpus stylistics can reveal uncovering interpretations between Stephen Hero and A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.

Symposium in studies of exile

An intellectual symposium for Joyce’s 136th anniversary, in the organization of The James Joyce Italian Foundation (with assistance from the Department of Foreign Languages, Literatures and Cultures at the University of Roma Tre) was introduced with a Welcome Gathering of the Scientific and organizing committee and members of the Foundation, and followed with an annual meeting of the members of The James Joyce Italian Foundation. The pleasant tradition of infinite Joycean discussions was continued during the Reception in a wonderful atmosphere at the Embassy of Ireland in Rome, hosted by His Excellency Ambassador Colm Ó Floinn. This Conference symposium strengthened more epiphanies in conversations and mutual professional gifts of ideas for studies about Joyce and exile, as a kind of special “joys of exile”.

Theoretical approaches to exiled self

In her presentation, “‘Self exiled in upon his ego’: A lingerous longerous book of the dark of the Exiled Self”, Tamar Gelashvili (Ivane Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University) exposed aspects of the exiled self and minds of homelessness in the 20th century through different forms of exile in Joyce’s opus and especially in Finnegans Wake, where plurality of the author’s exiled self in examining the sense of exiled language is followed to the exilic selves of the readers. In the paper by Brendan Kavanagh (University of Cambridge) “‘Between two roaring worlds where they swirl, I’: Re-Situating the Exiled Self in Ulysses” the author argued that re-making of self-imposed exile in Ulysses between the physical, social and psychological relations from the viewpoint of environmental theory on Joyce’s writings about exile posed the transmission among self, environment and total circulation as an active structure for a new interpretation of the exiled self between text and environment.

Having analysed all these ideas in the works of James Joyce it can be concluded that exile seems to be a challenging theoretical problem. During this Conference some new areas of possible interpretations were opened. Based on the reflections of the Conference, it is legitimate to expect new, valuable studies of exile, in the next annual journal James Joyce: The Joys of Exile, Joyce Studies in Italy 20, which will present original perspectives of readings of “exile” in Joyce.

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.
