Briggs Attends Joyce Conference in Antwerp
Austin Briggs, the Hamilton B. Tompkins Professor of English Literature Emeritus, participated in the International James Joyce Symposium that took place at the University of Antwerp in June. The theme of this year’s conference was “The Art of James Joyce.”
Briggs organized and moderated a round table discussion titled “Six Veteran Readers of Joyce Reflect on How He has Changed over the Decades They Have been Reading Him.” He also co-organized and co-moderated two reading sessions on Ulysses.
Also at the conference, the Trustees of the International James Joyce Foundation nominated Briggs for a position on the Board.
