In this Reading Group, we’ll read selections from James Joyce’s Ulysses to explore the consciousness of the novel’s three main characters and to debate if Joyce met his goal: “…to forge in the smithy of my soul the uncreated conscience of my race.”
This four-session Reading Group will be led by Lance Wahlert, Ph.D., a Trinity College fellow and University of Pennsylvania faculty member since 2002. Wahlert has taught courses on a wide variety of subjects including Irish literature, classical mythology, queer studies, and the history of medicine.
