NU student Matthew Harty helps launch VR Ulysses at National Library of Ireland

People in this story

Northeastern student Matthew Harty, an English and Computer Science combined major, is part of a team launching a virtual reality adaptation of James Joyce’s Ulysses on June 15th in the National Library of Ireland in Dublin. Matt worked on the project for his Capstone Seminar Project in the spring of 2017. He works with the engineering team and contributes to the interpretive discussions of what is, many claim, the most important novel of the 20th century. Matt participated in the Dialogue of Civilizations in Dublin with Professor Patrick Mullen, co-taught with Professor Joseph Nugent from BC, the head of the VR project, in summer 2016. The Dialogue sparked his love of Joyce. The team will be coming to Northeastern with the project this fall.
