The Stockholm University James Joyce Reading Group convened for the first time at the Pontus Hultén Study Gallery, at Moderna Museet, the collection that holds Constantin Brancusi’s “Portrait of James Joyce” (1928).

Jointly we decided to continue reading together and are announcing that we will meet once a month every term to read Joyce’s Ulysses. All you need to join us is to bring a copy of Ulysses (in any edition or language).

We will follow the procedure of Joyce Reading Groups established all over the world: we’ll read Ulysses aloud, sentence by sentence, line by line, to experience the text and to jointly tackle its richness. No preparation is required. The idea is that we put our heads together to meet Joyce's challenge.

The dates for Spring 2020:

The meeting place and time will be at the Department of English (Stockholm University), Room E890, 16.00–17.30.
