Audio Walking Tour in Joyce’s Paris

How did Paris Influence the Final Stages of Ulysses?

As we celebrate the centenary of the publication of Ulysses in Paris, this commissioned audio tour looks at the importance of public space to Joyce, who had to negotiate it with very poor eyesight, and how our movement through the city can bring us closer to the ideas in the book. Sound artist and composer Rachel Ní Chuinn teamed up with Joycean scholars Declan Kiberd, Barry McCrea and Katherine O’Callaghan to help answer these questions.
