The James Joyce Centre is delighted to welcome Dr Clare Hutton, Senior Lecturer in English from Loughborough University to begin the Spring/ Summer Lecture Series in February 2020. It may be the world’s most notorious Irish novel, but Ulysses was first published in New York in an obscure avant-garde journal, the Little Review.

James Joyce's Dubliners

Joyce once referred to Dublin as the ‘centre of paralysis’, a city that he felt was backward and repressive in contrast to the modern capitals of Europe. This idea found its expression in Dubliners, a short story collection that illustrates the effects of this restrictive atmosphere on the city’s population. Join our guide on a walk that visits some of the key locations from both the collection and the author’s life, discussing all the while Joyce’s critical portrayal of the social,…

€10 – €12

The ‘Lestrygonians’ episode of Ulysses sees Leopold Bloom make his way through the city centre on his way from Middle Abbey Street to the National Library. As he begins to feel the rumblings of hunger, his thoughts become centred on the social, political cultural and religious significance of food; as he goes on to think, food underlies all relations to the extent that ‘peace and war depend on some fellow’s digestion’. Bloom’s musings on the importance of food are mixed with a…
