A Presentation of the English Department's William J. and Yvonne Hyde Colloquium Series.
Dr. Adam Putz, IAS faculty in English, will continue the English Department's 2012-2013 William J. and Yvonne Hyde Colloquium Series with a presentation entitled "'Milk for the pussens': Animality in James Joyce's Ulysses." Dr. Putz will present findings from his research trip to Trinity College, Dublin, which was supported over the summer by the National Endowment for the Humanities and UWL's International Development Fund. His archival work at TCD focused on the Royal Zoological Society in order to reconnect the configurations of animality in Ulysses to representations of poverty that begin but do not end with Bloom and his cat. Therefore, this paper interrogates Joyce's investment in the larger project of not only blurring the boundaries between the city's built and natural environments, but also between its human and nonhuman inhabitants. The presentation runs from 2:30-3:30 p.m. on Friday, November 16th, in 113 Wimberly Hall. The event is free and open to the public.
