Discussion • Weight of history

Public access



Museo Joyce,

Date & Time

13 & 14 October, 2022

All the partners involved in the project meet four times over the duration of this Joycean odyssey. In the three cities in which Joyce wrote Ulysses (Trieste, Paris and Zurich) and then in Dublin in June 2024 to discuss the Arts & Society contemporary European themes which are the focus of each city’s mini-symposium. The final meeting will result in a published statement, structured in the form of 309 questions and potential answers (as inspired by Episode 17 of Ulysses) regarding the role of Arts & Society in a Better Future Europe. The statement will be published on this website in the Autumn of 2024.

In Trieste the partners discussed the theme Weight of History, exploring pivotal moments in each of their city’s histories which either changed the course of the city’s history, or marked a new insight into the city and its citizens.

During the first consortium meeting in Trieste – the first time all partners met as the project was developed during the Corona epidemic.
