Our Goals

The Zurich James Joyce Foundation was established in 1985 with a view to keeping alive the memory and work of the Irish writer James Joyce for the literary world in general, and in particular for Zurich, where Joyce spent some important creative years and where he died.

Our READING Groups
The Zürich James Joyce Foundation has been conducting weekly reading groups of Ulysses and Finnegans Wake for years. The aim is a thorough but leisurely and relaxed ramble through the works, step by step, with comments and discussion. It should bring out the vitality and humor of what so many potential readers shy away from but others become addicted to. All groups can be joined at any time. Newcomers are always welcome
