Ulysses 100

ulysses book cover2022 marks the 100th anniversary of the publication of James Joyce’s novel Ulysses, widely acknowledged as one of if not the most important publications of the twentieth century. The UB James Joyce Collection – as the world’s largest and most comprehensive collection by and about the acclaimed Irish author – is looking forward to the centenary as an opportunity to honor Joyce’s literary legacy and promote the UB James Joyce Collection worldwide.

The Poetry Collection is partnering on exhibitions and programs in the U.S. and abroad, including:

The campaign to develop support for the collection’s long-term plans includes a James Joyce Museum on UB’s South campus in Abbott Hall. Poetry Collection Curator James Maynard publicly announced the museum plans at the Bloomsday event held in June 2021 to launch the new James Joyce mural in the city of Buffalo. UB alumnus Steve Still made a $100,000 challenge gift after the mural event.  All gifts up to $100,000 made by June 16, 2022, in support of the James Joyce Museum Fund will be matched by Steve Still.

In addition, the design phase of the James Joyce Museum has been selected to receive a prestigious Infrastructure and Capacity Building Challenge Grant by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH).  UB Libraries is required to secure $300,000 to unlock the NEH’s $100,000 in funding. Help make this vision a reality by making a gift to the James Joyce Museum Fund today!
