Who's Afraid of James Joyce?

Karen R. Lawrence

University Press of Florida

This chapter addresses the issue of hospitality to women in a more institutional context: the International James Joyce Foundation and through the author's own experience beginning at the Zurich symposium in 1979. The changes in the Joyce organization reflect larger welcomed changes in the academy. And, as in the academy, still more needs to be done. The ratio of male to female critics of Joyce was overwhelming during that time. In a 1969 Modern Fiction Studies special issue on Joyce, all the contributors were men, and the Selected Checklist of Joyce criticism published that year included few women commentators among the hundreds listed. The collection Women in Joyce, edited by Suzette Henke and Elaine Unkeless in 1982, reflected some of the tensions in the first wave of feminist attention to Joyce, which tended to focus on Joyce's fictional representations of personal relationships with women.

Keywords:   hospitality, International James Joyce Foundation, Zurich symposium, Joyce organization, Suzette Henke, Elaine Unkeless
