The XIII James Joyce Italian Foundation Conference in Rome

Conference Dates: 30-31 January 2020
DEADLINE FOR ABSTRACTS: November 24, 2019

Keynote speakers:

  • Andrew Biswell, Metropolitan University of Manchester, President of the Anthony Burgess International Foundation

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 The Conference will be the occasion to present unpublished papers and works in progress on Joyce to an international audience.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

Accepted speakers can apply for the Giorgio Melchiori Grants. Please visit the James Joyce Italian Foundation website for information: https://thejamesjoyceitalianfoundation.wordpress.com/
