"All in all, it was an incredible learning experience that allowed me to understand Joyce better, and in turn, enjoy his work more thoroughly. Trieste and the Joyce School added depth to my understanding of Joyce and motivated me to continue in my research. I am especially happy and grateful to have been part of this wonderful experience because it allowed me to meet other Joyceans and join the family. The whole event was a great big celebration of diversity and equality, and also a platform for people from different parts of the world to connect and learn about one another while having fun. All I can say is that I hope to bring back what I have learned, to cultivate the friendships and contacts I have made, and to one day go back as a lecturer!" (Dominic Richards, student at the 2017 school).

"I get asked about this a lot and couldn't be happier to see them extend their outreach. John and Laura have built up something really amazing over the last two decades or so. No better place to be in the summer if you're all about Joyce, all about what he was about, and want to be having the best time around people who think the same" (Arunava Banerjee, student at the 2018 school).
