Student Symposium: Sunday, 4 August 2019
The 2019 Summer School will host an additional symposium featuring research and discussion by participants in the school, on the Sunday following the activities of the school (4 August 2019). We hope that this enhances the opportunity for current students and researchers to engage and reflect on their activities, and is the first step toward making the Summer School a credit-bearing course. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for enquiries related to the symposium, or express your interest on the registration form.
Please email email@example.com for any enquiries.
The Beckett Summer School began in 2011 as a project of the School of English and the School of Creative Arts at Trinity College Dublin. Since 2017, it forms a core part of the activities of the Trinity Centre for Beckett Studies, formed by a partnership between those two schools, the School of Languages, Literatures, and Cultural Studies, and the Trinity Library. The Summer School is housed on campus at the Trinity Long Room Hub Arts and Humanities Research Institute, which also hosts the research centre.
