Next year’s North American James Joyce Conference, sponsored by the Huntington Library from June 12-16, will be thematically focused on “Joyce in Science and Art.” Although proposals for papers, panels, and presentations on any and all aspects of Joyce studies will be considered for the 2011 meeting, the Conference Committee especially encourages submissions that address scientific and artistic aspects of Joyce’s work and its subsequent influence. Possible areas of emphasis for the 2011 meeting include, but are not limited to:
• Scientific foundations of Joyce’s work
• The union of Bloom and Stephen under the designations “The Scientific. The Artistic” • Computers and textual editing • Physics and Joyce on the nature of things • Classification and ordering • Phenomenology and the senses • The history of natural science • The development of language • Evolution • Medicine • Painting and drawing • Sculpture and other plastic arts • Music, dance, and dramatic performance • Film and video (including YouTube) • Interior design
• Cartoons, animation, and computer graphics
Presentations should be limited to 15-20 minutes and the deadlines for submissions is March 1, 2011. Proposals can be sent electronically to Jim LeBlanc (JDL8@cornell.edu) where as for general information regarding the conference, you should contact Colleen Jaurretche at firstname.lastname@example.org.
