Joyce to Beckett: Ireland and Modernism Symposium
22nd March 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pmFree
I will perform at Joyce to Beckett: Ireland and Modernism Symposium at Magdalene College, Cambridge, in association with the Cambridge Group for Irish Studies.
Website is here: https://www.magd.cam.ac.uk/joyce-to-beckett
The symposium runs for two days and I will play as part of the concert on the Thursday evening.
Information from the symposium:
Serial publication of James Joyce’s Ulysses began in the New York based journal The Little Review in March 1918.
To mark the centenary, Magdalene College in association with the Cambridge Group for Irish Studies is mounting a two-day symposium on the role of modernism in twentieth-century Irish culture.
The distinguished line-up of speakers includes many of the leading figures in Irish studies across several generations, as well as creative writers and actors. While the main focus will be on the two greatest Irish modernist writers, Joyce and Beckett, contributors will also consider other modern Irish writers and the appropriateness or otherwise of “modernism” as a category in poetry, fiction, drama and the visual arts.
