James Joyce, Fritz Senn, Translation, Reading-cum-understanding


Fritz Senn is a world-renowned James Joyce scholar and the heart and soul of the Zurich James Joyce Foundation, a research centre celebrated among Joyceans for its rich holdings and ar-chives, and for hosting a variety of cultural and scholarly events that include the annual weeklong August Workshops. In August 2011, we attended the work-shop on punctuation; our additional goal after the workshop was over was to sit down for a conversation with Fritz Senn. We ended up with well over two hours of recordings and, after transcribing and editing the audio, we are proudly pre-senting our interview to the reader.
