University of Chicago Ulysses Class

Just thought I’d pass along a bit of information for those of you who just can’t get enough Ulysses.  The University of Chicago is offering a Ulysses class this summer through their Graham School of General Studies.  The class runs from June 21 – August 9, meeting from 10am-3pm on Tuesdays.  The fee is $415 if you register before June 21.  See their website for more details.

Art Exhibit: 36 Views of Ulysses

I’m pleased to announce that Leonid Osseny’s 36 Views of Ulysses art exhibit is installed and ready for viewing on the second floor of the Main Library.  The exhibit will be on display through April 5.   In addition, we’ll host a small reception in honor of the exhibit in the Community Meeting Room on Tuesday, March 29, 6:30pm.  Mr. Osseny will deliver a short lecture about his artwork, and we’ll have refreshments.  Anyone can come – no registration is required.  Hope to see you there!

“Circe” Articles

A big thanks to everyone who made it to last week’s “Circe” lecture!  I thought Prof. Froula did a fantastic job explaining one of the most difficult episodes we’ve encountered so far.  Unfortunately, it wasn’t possible to record the lecture; however, Prof. Froula was gracious enough to send us a couple of her articles that deal with “Circe.”  You’ll find the links below. 

Because these are PDF documents, I’d strongly recommend downloading the files by right clicking on each link and then choosing Save Target As, and Open.  You’ll need to rotate the view in Adobe Reader.  Just click on View in the menu bar, Rotate View, then Clockwise.  If you just click on the links below and view them in a browser window, you won’t be able to adjust the orientation of the pages.  You must do this while the file is open in Adobe Reader.
