Course details

Experience the sights, sounds, smells and speech of Dublin in 1904 as captured in Joyce’s immortal words. Week by week, you will enter a world of love, family, comedy, politics, betrayal and passion, all played out on the streets so familiar to us all.

Facilitated by a seasoned teacher of Joyce, this course is aimed at all readers: no previous knowledge of Joyce is presumed of participants. Each session will be a stimulating, enjoyable mixture of group reading, instruction, discussion and guided exploration of the book. The only thing you need to bring is a copy of the novel itself – any edition is fine. The course will conclude with an optional guided walking tour of many of the sites mentioned in ‘Ulysses’.

Dr Conor Farnan has a longstanding passion for all things Joyce. Having worked with Joyce’s nephew at the James Joyce Centre, he has gone on to teach Joyce both in university and adult education settings. A number of his publications on Joyce are also in print.
