The 2016 Trieste Joyce School

University of Trieste, 26 June - 2 July 2016


"I cannot begin to give you the flavour of the old Austrian Empire. It was a ramshackle affair but it was charming, gay, and I experienced more kindnesses in Trieste than ever before or since in my life."

The 2016 Trieste Joyce School will be held from 26 June to 2 July. We are looking forward to celebrating this landmark year with a very special gathering.
