Initial Public Offering

The Beckman Auditorium at Caltech in Pasadena
The preliminary version of the academic program for the upcoming James Joyce Conference has been released and yours truly is scheduled to present on Thursday, June 16th. That is, of course, "Bloomsday" otherwise known as the most famous and perhaps important day for Joyceans and I've got the first slot that morning. My presentation will be an analysis of the two great 20th Century masters, Joyce and Salvador Dali. I'm not sure if it's open to the public or not but it will take place in the auditorium at the California Institute of Technology. See the full event program here.

I'm pretty thrilled about the whole thing but also, as an academic outsider who hasn't endured public speaking in almost four years, quite nervous. Here's hoping you'll be rooting for me.

    Bloomsday even. Highly auspicious, PQ.
