10th Trieste Joyce School

June 25–July 1, 2006
University of Trieste


“I cannot begin to give you the flavour of the old Austrian Empire. It was a ramshackle affair but it was charming, gay, and I experienced more kindnesses in Trieste than ever before or since in my life.”

The tenth edition of the Trieste Joyce School will take place from 25 June to 1 July 2006. Following the tradition established in previous years, this year's school hopes to satisfy the needs both of seasoned Joyceans and of newcomers to the world of Joyce studies. The School draws inspiration from Trieste itself—its history, its culture, its architecture, its institutions—and leaves participants with a sense of why Joyce came to describe the city as his “second country.”
