Description of Events

 

Now in its seventh consecutive year, the Trieste Joyce School aims to satisfy the needs both of seasoned Joyceans and of newcomers to the world of Joyce studies. It takes place in the city Joyce termed "my second country" and draws inspiration from Trieste itself - its history, its culture, its architecture, its institutions.

The Trieste Joyce School has developed a considerable reputation among Joyceans and has attracted students from over twenty different countries and long list of distinguished scholars and writers.

The school opens on the evening of Sunday 29 June in the auditorium of the Galleria d'Arte moderna "Revoltella" and concludes with a farewell dinner the following Saturday. A wide range of critical approaches is encouraged and each morning there are two or three lectures followed by week-long afternoon seminars on Joyce and the contemporary Irish novel (Eamonn Hughes), Ulysses (Fritz Senn), Joyce’s Triestine Writings (Erik Schneider), and Finnegans Wake (Ron Ewart). Walking tours to see key spots in Joyce's Trieste such as the Greek Orthodox Church, the Jewish Synagogue, the Teatro Verdi, the Museo Joyce and the Museo Svevo, and the Caffè San Marco are also arranged.

Among the planned highlights of the evening social programme are a visit to an Osmiza in the Triestine Carso, a visit to Miramare Castle - once summer home of the Hapsburgs, an evening of music and song, an afternoon on the beach, and a special reading by the acclaimed Irish novelist, John Banville.
