Weaver of the Wind – Online webinar –


On Thursday 21st April the James Joyce Centre hosted Weaver of the Wind – a conversation to unweave Harriet Shaw Weaver’s unique and complex role within the legacy of Ulysses.

This online webinar was presented by the people behind 4 diverse Ulysses centenary projects; “Weaver of the Wind” a short film by Lucy Brennan Shiel, The Ulysses 100 Project E-book produced by Susan Leybourne and Marion Byrne, the online premiere of “In token of gratitude” a short documentary with Harriet Shaw Weaver’s great-niece Harriet Cole ( nee Weaver) and “Women and the Making of Ulysses” in Austin, Texas curated by Clare Hutton.

James Joyce dedicated the No 1 hand-printed First Edition copy of Ulysses to Harriet Shaw Weaver with the inscription ‘In token of gratitude’ and significantly referenced her within Ulysses as “Weaver of the Wind.” Both quotes highlight her importance in the life and work of James Joyce. In our diverse ways, we are giving voice to her quiet modesty and exploring her crucial underpinning and understanding of his genius.
