One of the world’s greatest literary treasures resides at the University at Buffalo─The James Joyce Collection. Comprising more than 10,000 pages of the author’s working papers, notebooks, manuscripts, photographs, correspondence, portraits, publishing records, important memorabilia and ephemeral material, as well as Joyce’s private library and the complete body of significant Joyce criticism, the collection distinguishes UB as the leading resource for Joyce scholarship.
The UB James Joyce Collection has long attracted scholars, students and literary researchers from around the world to Buffalo. Today, we are exploring how to share this renowned collection with a wider and more inclusive audience in Western New York and beyond with the goal of creating a UB James Joyce Museum. In addition to a permanent exhibition space, we are also seeking to guarantee the Joyce Collection’s future growth through a preservation and acquisitions endowment, a James Joyce curator position, and programming and exhibition funds.Learn More
