CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: Public Lecture - 'For his Diligence Majesty our long distance laird that likes creation': the Finnegans Wake creative, 5th March, 2014, St Marys University, Twickenham, London

http://extranet.smuc.ac.uk/events-conferences/RIP-Lecture-Series-2013-14/Pages/len-platt.aspx

Abstract: 
Joyces last great work is not comprised of many borrowed styles, like Ulysses, but, rather, 
formulated as one dense, tongue-twisting soundscape. The language of the Wake is based on English 
vocabulary and syntax but, at the same time, self-consciously designed to function as a machine 
with an astonishing capacity for resisting singularity of meaning. It also wrecks almost all our 
standard ways of thinking about what being creative in literary culture means. This talk will 
consider what kind of creative practice went into the formation of this text and how the Wake 
shifts our understanding of the aesthetics of creativity.
 
About the Speaker:
Author of Joyce and the Anglo Irish (1998) and Joyce, Race and Finnegans Wake (2007), Prof. Platt 
is currently working on Scottish neo-nationalism and formations of national identity in 
contemporary Scottish literature. His interest in literature and place, especially marginalised 
place, is currently focused on how literatures of various kinds have represented the lsle of 
Sheppey, located fifty miles from London on the Thames estuary, from the seventeenth century to 
the present day. His work on musical theatre and cultural exchange between London and Berlin 
(1890-1940) is being published by Cambridge University Press next year.
 
Registration
All lectures are free and open to the public without registration. Lectures start at 5:15 and 
last for 50 minutes, with 40 minutes for questions. This is then followed by a wine reception.
 
Venue
 
Senior Common Room, St Marys University, Waldegrave Road, Strawberry Hill, Twickenham, TW1 4SX, UK.
