Dr. Shelly Brivic at the 5th Biennial International Korean James Joyce Conference in Kwangju Korea
Professor Shelly Brivic delivered the keynote address at the Fifth
Biennial International Korean James Joyce Conference in Kwangju Korea
on November 10, 2012. His topic was "Joyce and Korea: Joyce and Cha's DICTEE."
Brivic discovered that the last chapter of Finnegan's Wake (1939) has as one of its main themes the idea that Asia will rise to become the center of world civilization. Since Joyce predicted it, it was bound to happen. Ireland and Korea share tragic histories of colonialism, and Brivic spoke of the parallels between Joyce's work and that of the
experimental Korean- American writer, Theresa Hak Kyung Cha. Like Brivic,
Cha got a graduate degree from the University of California at Berkeley and
was a fan of Joyce's.
