Ms. Jinan Ashraf, Ph.D scholar in the Dept. of English, School of Humanities at the University of Hyderabad (UoH) has been selected for The Dublin James Joyce Summer School, 30th June – 7th July 2019, hosted by the University College Dublin in collaboration with the National Library of Ireland and the James Joyce Centre, Dublin, Ireland, with a full scholarship.
Jinan is working on her Phd on James Joyce’s Finnegans Wake under the supervision of Prof. K. Narayana Chandran and Prof. Anna Kurian.
The James Joyce Summer School is a prominent scholarly event for specialists from all over the world.
As the School write-up puts it:
“A unique aspect of the school is the fact that it gives Joycean enthusiasts the opportunity to savour and re-experience his writing in the context of the city which inspired and shaped it. The Summer School meets in Newman House where Joyce attended university and in Boston College-Ireland, both on St Stephen’s Green in the heart of Dublin. This unique setting provides the perfect backdrop against which to reflect on Joyce’s works and to assess his continuing influence on contemporary fiction in Ireland and elsewhere”.
