2013: “Beckett and the ‘State’ of Ireland” III will further expand issues concerning Beckett and Ireland. More to come….
“Beckett and the ‘State’ of Ireland” conference 2012 is a continuation from last year’s conference which is exploring the link between Samuel Beckett and his home country of Ireland.
Those who attend our conference will have the benefit of being in close proximity to the Samuel Beckett Summer School held at Trinity College Dublin the following. Attending the two in tandem will be a highly rewarding experience of a wide range of current Beckett topics mixed with already established and prominent scholarship. Please visit the Beckett Summer School website for more details. http://www.beckettsummerschool.com/
