The creators of the audiobook for UCD's digital multimedia edition of 'A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man' have considerable expertise in bringing James Joyce's voice to life. University College Dublin Professor Gerardine Meaney and Athena Media previously collaborated with Barry McGovern, the well-known Irish actor, on the podcast series and an iPhone app based on 'The Dead'. In 2016, Sam McGovern joined this team to create a full-length audio version of Joyce's first novel. Rather than featuring a single voice, this reading of the novel creates a dialogue between Joyce's mature voice and that of his younger, remembered self. The interplay of these two voices in this reading of the 1916 text represents a unique contemporary interpretation of Joyce's coming-of-age novel, whose themes remain as raw and as relevant today as they did upon their original publication. The digital multimedia edition of Joyce's first novel was created by a team from University College Dublin as part of the Decade of Centenaries (2012-2022), which celebrates Irish history and cultural heritage. www.joyceportrait100.com
