James Joyce et l’Italie / James Joyce’s Voyage in Italy

June 27-29, 2008

The CARMA Research Center of Universités Lumière Lyon 2 and Jean Moulin Lyon 3, in partnership with the city of Saint-Gérand-le-Puy, is pleased to announce the 2008 International James Joyce Conference to be held in Saint-Gérand, France, on June 27-29.

Conference Organizers: Franca Ruggieri, Jacques Aubert, Pascal Bataillard

Keynote Speakers: Carla Marengo-Vaglio, Jean-Michel Rabaté, Jacqueline Risset

Scholars are invited to submit 300-word proposals for a three-day conference on all subjects pertaining to Joyce and Italy.

Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:

● Joyce and the Local(s)
● Joyce and Pola-Pula/Trieste/Rome
● Joyce and the Italian language
● Portrait of Joyce as a young Italian, Giacomo Joyce
● Joyce and/in translation (from Nino Frank & Co to Gruppo 63, Diacono, and Schenoni…)
● Joyce and Movies, Film Adaptations, Joyce’s interest in films, what can Viaggio in Italia / Voyage in Italybring to the reader of James Joyce?
● Joyce and Italian writers, artists, and thinkers (the “classics”, Joyce’s contemporaries, the legacy and posterity of Joyce…)
           * Joyce and Dante, Bruno, Vico…
           * Joyce and Svevo, D’Annunzio, Calvino, Eco…
● Joyce and politics (Italian nationalism, Ferrero…)
● Joyce’s literary connections, such as Valéry Larbaud and Samuel Beckett, known for their interest in Italian culture (Larbaud, a native of nearby Vichy, is also of special relevance to the conference as the “supervisor” of Morel’s translation of Ulysses; as for Beckett, he left long-lasting impressions in Saint-Gérand).

Presentations should be between 25 and 30 minutes so as to leave time for discussion.
A selection of papers will be published in the conference proceedings.

Please send 300-word proposals, along with a brief 100-word bio, to: pascal.bataillard@univ-lyon2.fr by April 5, 2008.
