The video we recommend here was produced on the occasion of Bloomsday, in June 2020. Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, all celebrations of Ulysses, James Joyce’s influential novel, were held exclusively online. The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade of the Republic of Ireland, in collaboration with the Republic’s Embassies in several countries around the world, were in charge of the co-ordination and production of the short film. The video features Aurora Piñeiro, a collaborator in this PAPIME project.
