James Joyce Remembered Edition 2022

“My dear Curran, I am in double trouble, mental and material…”

When Joyce wrote this note in August, 1904, C.P. Curran and the writer were already comrades. From the first days the two Dubliners spent together in Newman House, talking literature, their connection deepened in moments of crisis. Other Irish writers and activists – Helen Laird Curran, Padraic Colum & Mary Maguire Colum were part of this lifeline to the writer; and it extended to Paul Léon in Paris. All of them were working with their friend – and the Joyce family – to invent a freer, and newly expressive world.

UCD Press reissues Curran’s book of memories, James Joyce Remembered this year, to celebrate this creative cohort once more. In this 2022 edition, another set of University College Dubliners takes a look at their writing, their photographs, and the political challenges facing them; in Dublin as the Irish Civil War was erupting; in Paris as French fascists and Nazis seized power.

On March 28, James Joyce Remembered, edition 2022, will be launched with contributors, Hugh Campbell, Diarmaid Ferriter, Anne Fogarty, Margaret Kelleher, Evelyn Flanagan, Eugene Roche, Alice Ryan, Jennifer O’Donnell, Jonathan Janssens and Helen Solterer, the grand-daughter of C.P. and Helen Laird Curran.

Join us as UCD brings this collective book back home to MoLI, 86-87 St. Stephen’s Green, where it began.
