Next week one of the Great Writers Inspire Student Ambassadors, Cleo Hanaway, will be attending the XXIII International James Joyce Symposium in Dublin. Cleo will be chairing a session on ‘Joyce, Impact and Public Engagement’ and will be sharing her experiences of working on the Great Writers project in her talk ‘pro bono publico: Picturing Ulysses and Blogging about Joyce’. It is a great time to be talking about Joyce as the works published in his lifetime have just come out of copyright – perfect timing for our project!
Cleo will also be taking part in a panel discussion on RTE Radio 1 on Wednesday 13 June at 7 pm, and will do her best to squeeze in a mention of Great Writers Inspire, so listen in if you get the chance.
Our Student Ambassadors are doing amazing work for the project – not only collecting and creating content to inspire our target audience, but providing inspiration to the project team on ways to engage, disseminate and improve the impact of the site. They are, to quote David Kernohan, ‘awesome’!
