Celebrate Bloomsday online with readings from James Joyce’s Ulysses by Berkeley faculty and members of the Irish and Irish-American community in Dublin, Los Angeles, Seattle, and the Bay Area. Host Catherine Flynn will situate each reading in the Dublin of 1904. This event is co-organized by the UC Berkeley Irish Studies Program and the Consulate General of Ireland, with support from the UC Berkeley Division of Arts & Humanities.
Catherine Flynn is Director of Irish Studies and Associate Professor of English at UC Berkeley where she works on Irish modernist literature and culture in a European avant-garde context and on critical theory. Her book James Joyce and the Matter of Paris recently appeared with Cambridge University Press (2019). She is currently at work on an edited volume with CUP titled New Joyce Studies: Twenty-First Century Critical Revisions and on an edition of Ulysses for its centenary in 2022.
