The VIII James Joyce Italian Foundation Conference in Rome

Italian JJ Foundation

The James Joyce Italian Foundation will hold its 8th Conference in Rome from February 2-3 of 2015.  The conference invites unpublished and in-progress essays and asks for 250-500 word abstracts with a short biography by November 15, 2014.  Because this year’s conference coincides with the Yeats’ 150th birthday, organizers are encouraging paper proposals to engage with Joyce, Yeats, and topics focusing on the Irish Revival.  They provide a list of possible paper topics but encourage others as well:

– Joyce and/vs Yeats
– Joyce and/vs Synge
– Joyce and/vs A.E.
– Joyce and/vs Lady Gregory
– Joyce as a revivalist
– Joyce’s drama/Yeats’s theatre
– Joyce’s poetry and the Revival
– Rewriting the Revival in Joyce’s notebooks, drafts, and completed works
– Joyce, genetic studies and the Revival
– Joyce’s Triestine journalism and the Revival
– Joyce’s writings as Revivals/Counter-revivals
