May 11 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
We are thrilled to have Dr. Christine O’Neill deliver her lecture as the final part of this Spring/Sumer Lecture series.
The works of James Joyce and Hieronymus Bosch are famous for their inventiveness and colourful creations, and both draw on biblical stories and late medieval Christian imagery. This talk will explore some shared visionary elements, track some intriguing animal-like creatures, contemplate the Four Last Things and descend into the vibrant hells of Joyce and Bosch.
Dr. Christine O’Neill studied English and German at the University of Zurich and Trinity College Dublin. Her publications include Too Fine a Point: A Stylistic Analysis of the ‘Eumaeus’ Episode in ‘Ulysses’ (1996), Inductive Scrutinies, a collection of essays by Fritz Senn (1995), The Joycean Murmoirs of Fritz Senn (2007) and Niall Montgomery: Dublinman (2015).
She is a regular contributor to international Joyce publications and has worked as a researcher, editor, translator and arts administrator in recent years.
