In this centenary year, the Dublin James Joyce Summer School is hosting A Ulysses Gathering: a series of six lectures (two each morning) from 5 to 7 July 2022 on various aspects of Joyce's life and works with a particular emphasis on Ulysses. Given all the Joyce events this year in Dublin and around the world, we will not be offering the usual afternoon seminars or a social programme. Tuition is 200 Euros and scholarships for students are available. Accommodation is not included but can be arranged as needed at UCD.

The traditional Dublin Joyce Summer School programme will resume next year from 2 to 9 July 2023.

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.

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.
