*CFP: The Art of James Joyce *
The 26th International James Joyce Symposium
11-16 June 2018, Antwerp.
*Deadline for abstracts:* Friday, 2 February 2018.
*Deadline for applications for the graduate student scholarship:* Thursday,
15 February 2018.
*Registration rates:* €100 students/unwaged; €120 standard rate; €150

Between 11 and 16 June 2018, the University of Antwerp’s Centre for
Manuscript Genetics will host the 26th International James Joyce Symposium
in the city that Joyce and his family visited in the summer of 1926.
Belgium is small, so much so that all of the sites Joyce toured that year
(Ostend, Bruges, Ghent, Brussels and, most importantly, Waterloo) are
within a 100-kilometre radius of the conference venue.
In his earliest prose writings, James Joyce described himself as an artist.
His brother Stanislaus’s diary and Richard Ellmann’s 1959 biography
reinforced an image of Joyce as the lone and dedicated creator who was
prepared to give up everything for his art. We interpret the title of this
conference as both an objective and a subjective genitive – from Joyce’s
aesthetic or artistry to pictures of Cork in cork frames – and as a
reminder of Joyce’s long afterlife in the creative arts. We want to explore
the role of art as a socially constructed commodity in Joyce’s work as well
as trace his fortunes in the fine art and rare book marketplace; we invite
studies of the ways in which Joyce crafted his oeuvre, in the wake of *The
Art of James Joyce*, A. Walton Litz’s pioneering study of the creation of
*Ulysses* and *Finnegans Wake*; and we are also interested in contributions
that, creatively or critically, address the impact of Joyce’s artistic
persona and work on other artists, in various forms and different mediums.
Given the increased visibility of the digital humanities in Joyce studies
and the proliferation of multimedia responses to his work, we also
encourage contributions that do not necessarily conform to the traditional
The symposium invites proposals for *individual papers*, *fully formed
panels*, and *multimedia/digital exhibitions*. Participants are limited to
one paper and one non-paper panel appearance (e.g. as panel chair or
respondent). All participants must be members in good standing of the
International James Joyce Foundation: non-members or members whose
registration has lapsed will not be scheduled. To join or to renew your
membership, please visit the Foundation website [link
To propose an individual contribution, please submit a *250-word abstract*
that includes the *speaker’s name* and *academic affiliation* (if
applicable) alongside the *paper* or *project title*. To propose a panel,
the panel chair should submit a *500-word abstract* on the panel as a whole
that includes the *names*, *academic affiliations*, and *email addresses*
of all participants; the *title of the panel* as well as the *titles of
each individual contribution*; and the names and affiliations of the panel
chair and respondent (if any). Please note that panels should have a *maximum
of four speakers*. The panel chair may give a paper but please note that,
in this case, it is customary for the panel chair to be scheduled last.
The deadline for proposals is *2 February 2018*, Joyce’s birthday.
Proposals should be sent to joyce2018 at uantwerpen.be. For more information
