University College Dublin has announced the dates for the fourth James Joyce Research Colloquium in 2011. The colloquium, April 14-16, will focus on research opportunities and challenges in Joycean Studies. Speakers will analyze and debate the usefulness of particular methodologies and theoretical positions that have aided their own works in progress. Additionally, as the copyright of on some of Joyce’s texts draws closer to expiration, participants will be encouraged to discuss the possible trajectories of Joyce Studies in the upcoming years.

The keynote lecture on April 14 will be given by Professor Jean-Michel Rabaté. Other speakers at the 2011 colloquium will include Dr. Scarlett Baron (Magdalen College, University of Oxford), Frank Callanan (Dublin), Dr. Luca Crispi (University College Dublin), Professor Anne Fogarty (University College Dublin), Dr. Clare Hutton (Loughborough University), Dr. Katherine Mullin (University of Leeds), Dr. John Nash (Durham University), and Dr. Sam Slote (Trinity College Dublin).

Participants at the colloquium will include doctoral and post-doctoral students currently engaged in research on Joyce in Ireland and across Europe, North America, and elsewhere. MA students, Joyce scholars, and those with an active interest in Joyce are also encouraged to attend, particularly Joyce and Irish Studies specialists in Ireland.

Scholarships are available for doctoral and post-doctoral students that will cover travel, accommodation, and events. Applicants should email a CV, letter of introduction (which includes specific interests in Joyce and why the colloquium will be beneficial), an academic reference, and any other additional relevant information to luca.crispi@ucd.ie . The deadline for scholarship applications is Friday, February 4, 2011. Preference will be given to first-time applicants, but applications from previous recipients of scholarships from UCD James Joyce Research Centre events are also welcome.  

Further information will be posted in January 2011.

For further details and information about the colloquium, please contact Dr. Luca Crispi at  luca.crispi@ucd.ie or joyceresearchcentre@ucd.ie.
