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 The conference will be the occasion to present unpublished papers and works in progress on Joyce to an international audience.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