Holy Cow! A Celebration of Joyce - Melbourne

 Holy Cow! James Joyce Slaughters the Sacred Cows of English Literature

Event Times: 7.30 Wed - Friday; 4pm and 8pm Saturday (Bloomsday); 3pm and 6pm Sunday

An adaptation for theatre of James Joyce's Oxen of the Sun which parodies the entire English Literary Tradition. The play also riffs on childbirth and fertility. It’s as far from political correctness as one can get, and sassier than what you’d hear just about anywhere else in the Classics!

"No Petty People": The Making of Literary Ireland

Professor Ronan McDonald delivers the Faculty of Arts Dean’s Lecture: ‘No Petty People’: The Making of Literary Ireland 

For a small country, Ireland has an immense literary heritage and international reputation. This lecture considers some political, social and cultural reasons why this is so. It reflects on the anomalous conditions in which Ireland grappled with modernity in the aftermath of the Great Famine. It assesses the cultural nationalism that led to the extraordinary flowering of the Irish Literary Revival, led by W.B. Yeats, not only in national terms but also enmeshed within wider European intellectual and cultural agendas.  Free entry.
