The James Joyce Foundation

In 1988 The James Joyce Foundation launched the first public Bloomsday in Sydney at The State Library of New South Wales and each year organizes an innovative creative engagement with “Ulysses”.

The 100th anniversary of Bloomsday took place on June 16th, 2004 at 9.30 p.m. Dublin time National Library of Ireland and 6.30 p.m. at the Conservatorium of Music in Sydney. Writers Paul Muldoon, Eavan Boland, Toby Litt, Rosa-Maria Bollettieri Bosinelli and Jean-Michel Rabate in Dublin were joined by Tom Keneally, David Malouf and Alexis Wright in Sydney and held a discussion exploring Joyce's use of language to liberate the concept of boundaries and frontiers beyond nationalism.

Each year on Bloomsday the James Joyce Foundation publishes articles and papers to further research and understanding of Joyce's writing, the links above will take you to the archive.
