A symposium at Magdalene College, Cambridge, in association with the Cambridge Group for Irish Studies.
Serial publication of James Joyce’s Ulysses began in the New York based journal The Little Review in March 1918.
To mark the centenary, Magdalene College in association with the Cambridge Group for Irish Studies is mounting a two-day symposium on the role of modernism in twentieth-century Irish culture.
The distinguished line-up of speakers includes many of the leading figures in Irish studies across several generations, as well as creative writers and actors. While the main focus will be on the two greatest Irish modernist writers, Joyce and Beckett, contributors will also consider other modern Irish writers and the appropriateness or otherwise of “modernism" as a category in poetry, fiction, drama and the visual arts.
Speakers include: Ned Allen, Nicholas Allen, Lauren Arrington, John Banville, Scarlett Baron, Angela Bourke, Steven Connor, Alex Davis, Hunter Dukes, Lisa Dwan, Roy Foster, Claire Hutton, Margaret Kelleher, Declan Kiberd, Edna and Michael Longley, Willy Maley, Drew Milne, Emilie Morin, David Wheatley and Clair Wills.
