| 7 June 2004
The events in James Joyce's Ulysses cover one single day, the 16th of June 1904. On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of "Bloomsday" the Department of English and American Studies of the University of Heidelberg extends a cordial invitation to attend a series of events ranging from academic lectures to a cartoon film
The backbone of 16 June 2004 will be a marathon reading of Ulysses taking place (like the novel itself) from 8 a.m. to about 1 a.m. on June 17. The locations are the gardens of the Department of English, the student common room and (as of 8 p.m.) the bar of the "Romanischer Keller" where (presumably much-needed) liquid refreshment will be provided. In the afternoon from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. there will be a series of short lectures on Ulysses in Room 110 of the English Department (Kettengasse 12). Among the speakers are Heidelberg scholars (Prof. Dr. Helmuth Kiesel, Privatdozent Dr. Christoph Schöneich, Prof. Dr. Hans-Joachim Zimmermann) and the Chemnitz Joyce specialist Prof. Dr. Werner Huber.
