Dr. Tim Conley of Brock University is currently on a James M. Flaherty Visiting Professorship in Trinity College Dublin. The Joyce Scholar is completing the remaining chapters of his book, which currently has the working title Useless Joyce: Textual Functions and Cultural Appropriations.
Dr. Conley is being hosted by Professor Chris Morash, and Dr. Sam Slote, of Trinity College Dublin, and as part of the current collaboration, he has been discussing plans for a new project with Dr. Slote on Joyce’s own translations, which they hope to collect in a single annotated volume. Both Dr. Conley and Dr. Slote are preparing contributions to a book on translation extremes edited by Dr. Alexandra Lukes of Trinity College Dublin.
This Friday, Dr. Conley will be giving a talk entitled ‘Reframing A Portrait in Finnegans Wake’ at the Centenary Readings of James Joyce’s ‘A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man’, in the James Joyce Centre from 17:00–17.30. This conference is part of the centenary commemorations in Ireland and aims to encourage debate and discussion on one hundred years of scholarship on Joyce’s work.
