Reminder

Posted by James Joyce Italian Foundation on 18/12/2020

Dear Members and Friends of the James Joyce Italian Foundation,we’d like to remind you that we have an ongoing CfP for our next issue of Joyce Studies in Italy (deadline: Joyce’s 139th birthday, Feb 2, 2021):

JOYCE PAYS, JOYSPACE (OR JOYCE AND SPACE)

Joyce studies in Italy vol. 23 (2021)

PAPER SUBMISSION DEADLINE: FEBRUARY 2, 2021

Joyce Studies in Italy, a peer-reviewed annual journal dealing with all areas of Joyce studies, invites Joycean scholars to submit papers (max 5.000 words including bibliography, no images) on the subject of Joyce and Space.

If during the Twentieth Century the idea of identity and selfhood was mainly considered as rooted in temporality, in the last few decades the spatial condition of human existence has acquired a new and profound relevance after the so-called Spatial Turn which has produced a deep change in the relationship between space, place, body and mind. Indeed, places can be conceived and experienced in a variety of ways: through fleeting yet intense bodily perceptions, mental and memory constructions, or as the result of cultural and literary inventions, so much so that distinctive and diverse places are regarded as the product of deeply felt links between people and the places they live in.

As Valérie Bénéjam and John Bishop write in Making Space in the Works of James Joyce (2011) Joyce’s concern for space “be it urban, geographic, stellar, geometrical, or optical – obviously appeared a central and idiosyncratic feature of his work”. For example, in the first chapter of the Portrait Stephen defines his position in space, according to his personal cosmology, while in Ulysses the perception of places is firstly lived through the body and bodily sensations.

Contributors are invited to explore how in Joyce’s novels space and places are constituted, perceived, known and lived in their physical, existential, memorial, textual, cognitive, imaginative or cerebral dimension, and how such perception – real or imaginary, conscious or unaware that it is – contributes to building the identities both of places and individuals, in a continuous exchange between subjective and objective, between embodied mind and places, since “being” is synonymous to “be somewhere”.

Contributions will undergo a double-blind peer review process, and selected papers will be recommended for publication in the 2021 issue of the journal.

Related topics include, but are not limited to:

Only papers which fully comply with the JSI Stylesheet and are related to the theme of the volume will be considered for submission to reviewers. Authors are kindly invited to submit their full papers to r.baronti@unicas.it by February 2, 2021.

Jacques Aubert

Posted by James Joyce Italian Foundation on 07/12/2020

Jacques Aubert passed away at his home in Lyon on Saturday November 28th. This is a terrible loss, and not only for the Joycean community.

A bio from 2013 records that Jacques was Emeritus Professor of English and Modern Literature at Université Lyon 2, a member of the École de la Cause Freudienne and the University Scientific Council, and Director of the Centre d’Études et de Recherches Anglaises et Nord-Américaines. He was also General Editor of works dedicated to James Joyce and Virginia Woolf for Éditions Gallimard and for Bibliothéque de la Pléiade.  His Introduction a l’estétique de James Joyce, published in France in 1973 and translated into English in 1992 as The Aesthetics of James Joyce, was – and still is – considered a milestone and a classic in Joyce studies. With Maria Jolas he co-authored Joyce & Paris 1902…1920 – 1940…1975 in 1979, and James Joyce with Fritz Senn in 1986. In 2004 he coordinated Ulysse, a new collaborative French translation of the novel.  A fully revised edition was published in 2013. However, this short list of his academic achievements and the titles of his publications cannot do justice to such an utterly good man. His caring, understanding smile comes to mind whenever his name is mentioned.

What remains, apart from his writings and his teaching, is his thirst for intellectual pursuits,  that, as Pascal Bataillard says, can often be “a source of inspiration for a fuller life with others”.

Jacques was a great scholar, an intellectual through and through, and a man of great humanity. He never failed to give his prestigious support to our Joycean events here in Rome. I am still grateful to him for his presence and for his insightful articles, including the last essay, “Lacan and the Joyce-effect”, that he wrote for Joyce Studies in Italy, in 2013.

James Joyce Italian Foundation Annual Conference

Posted by James Joyce Italian Foundation on 28/07/2020

Dear members of the James Joyce Italian Foundation,


due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the James Joyce Italian Foundation decided that it will not be possible to hold the XIV JJIF Conference in Rome in February 2021. It would have revolved, as planned, around the theme of Joyce and Space.


We are all very disappointed. For the first time in our history, we had to cancel our annual event to which many of you brilliantly contributed with your vision and insight in the past. We are very grateful to all of you who worked so hard over the years to make our event a special one.

For this reason, we thought a good way to make up would be to proceed with the yearly publication of our journal devoting the next issue to the planned theme of the conference. Please find in the next update the CfP with submission guidelines and stylesheet. We kindly remind you that in order to submit a paper, you need to be a member of the JJIF.


In addition, we decided to launch the Giorgio Melchiori prize for publication in the “Piccola Biblioteca Joyciana” series which has been going on for more than ten years now. Paid members of the JJIF are invited to apply by submitting a project (one page in length plus bibliography) for a short study they intend to write (110/120 pages). The winner will be asked to submit the complete manuscript by 30 April, 2021. The book will be officially launched at the XIV James Joyce Foundation Conference in Rome, in February 2022. Proposals can be sent to joyce.foundation@uniroma3.it and franca.ruggieri@uniroma3.it Deadline: October 8, 2020.


These are difficult times for us all around the world, and we hope that you will stay safe. We look forward to seeing you at a next James Joyce Italian Foundation Conference in 2022. Please check out our website and facebook page for updates.
