Bloomsday in the Bend

On June 16, 1904, Leopold Bloom, the main character of James Joyce’s Ulysses, went on his epic journey through the streets of Ireland. Known as one of the greatest works of modern as well as Western literature, Joyce’s Ulysses is remarkable in the fact that its events take place within the span of 24 hours. Thus, every year on June 16, seasoned Joyceans and blooming Bloomites alike gather together across the globe to celebrate Bloom’s trek around Dublin.

Although Notre Dame boasts of being the home of not only the Fighting Irish but cutting-edge Irish scholarship, we have yet to host a Bloomsday event in honor of one of the most famous Irish texts of all time.

Joyce imagined his work’s audience to be the everyman and everywoman. Because of this, the CSLC encourages everyone to attend, from individuals who have read the book ten times to those who are interested in just knowing a little bit more about this Joyce fellow. Come, bring your family, and have fun celebrating one of the greatest works of Western literature.

EAP Workshop: Conferences and Networking


Location: 302 DeBartolo Hall

Conferences are often fun, motivating events that will push your research forward and allow you to interact with other researchers in your field. But just as often, conferences cause anxiety, because we are all told of the importance of using them to “network” but find the process of doing that intimidating or mystifying. This workshop will decode the conference as an event, discuss what networking means, and provide you with strategies to successfully utilize conferences as networking opportunities.…
