Framed in Cork

Lecture Series

25 April 2023, 6:30pm

Join us for the first lecture in our Spring/Summer Lecture Series for FRAMED IN CORK: JAMES JOYCE’S CORK WITH Dr. FLICKA SMALL.

Joyce’s paternal grandparents, James Augustine Joyce and Ellen O’Connell, both natives of Cork City, married in Cork in 1847. Their son John Stanislaus was raised in Cork – on the boats in the harbour, in the streets with his university comrades, in the theatre and the music hall. In this talk, Dr. Flicka Small will explore the many Cork connections within Joyce’s life and literature.

This year Flicka is bringing James Joyce back to his Rebel Roots for Bloomsday 2023. If you’re interested in more background about the family in Cork or would just like to hear about the exciting events and topics taking place in Cork on Friday 16th and Saturday 17th June, come along on Tuesday, April 25th at 6:30pm.

Tickets are free but booking is essential:
