The 2021 Dublin James Joyce Summer School has been cancelled. Details about the 2022 Summer and a programme of events to mark the centenary of Ulysses will be posted in Autumn 2022.

Founded in 1988 by Augustine Martin of UCD, the James Joyce Summer School is one of the foremost gatherings in the Joycean calendar. Each year scholars and lovers of Joyce gather from all corners of the globe to celebrate and analyse the work of this great writer. A unique aspect of the school is the fact that it gives Joycean enthusiasts the opportunity to savour and re-experience his writing in the context of the city which inspired and shaped it. The Summer School meets in Newman House where Joyce attended university and in Boston College-Ireland, both on St Stephen's Green in the heart of Dublin. This unique setting provides the perfect backdrop against which to reflect on Joyce's works and to assess his continuing influence on contemporary fiction in Ireland and elsewhere. We gratefully acknowledge the financial assistance of the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.

For further information on the 2022 Summer School contact the Director, Dr Luca Crispi (luca.crispi@ucd.ie) or Director, Professor Anne Fogarty (anne.fogarty@ucd.ie) .

The Dublin James Joyce Summer School is governed by UCD's Dignity and respect policy. We are committed to providing an environment free from discrimination and from sexual and other forms of harassment and expect all our members to abide by these principles.  For further details, please see the UCD Dignity and respect Policy.


The Dublin James Joyce Summer School and University College Dublin are pleased to present the 2022 programme in collaboration with the National Library of Ireland and the James Joyce Centre, Dublin
