A Humanities Unbounded Collaborative Project in German and Romance Studies at Duke University

Month: January 2022

February 8th at noon: “ReJoyce 2022: 100 Years of Multi-lingual Play”

ReJoyce 2022: 100 Years of Multi-lingual Play

Trieste-Zurich-Paris 1914-1921 is the last line of James Joyce’s Ulysses, and the signature of this experimental novel, published first in France in 1922.   As we mark the centenary of Ulysses, we celebrate its multi-lingual play.

The small pop-up exhibit in the Perkins Circulation area invites you to discover some of Joyce’s works in the collections of the David M. Rubenstein Rare Book and Manuscript Library.

On February 8: an opportunity to discover the pop-up exhibit with colleagues.. Come enjoy something of the sounds of Ulysses’ inventiveness in English, français, italiano, + a song and maps too. The event is planned in person.

February 8, 12:00-1:30 PM, Carpenter Conference Room, Rubenstein Library 249
