Modernism and Slippage: How Movements Might Move
Monday, 26 September 2022, 10 – 11am
A seminar by Dr Nicholas Johnson (TCD) as part of the School of Creative Arts Research Forum.
Nicholas Johnson is Associate Professor of Drama at Trinity College Dublin, where he has worked full-time since 2008. He co-founded the Trinity Centre for Beckett Studies, within which he co-directs the Beckett Summer School and the Samuel Beckett Laboratory. With Jonathan Heron (Warwick), he co-authored the monograph Experimental Beckett (Cambridge UP, 2020) and co-edited the Performance Issue (23.1, 2014) and Pedagogy Issue (29.1, 2020) of the Journal of Beckett Studies. He co-edited two volumes of essays from the Beckett Working Group of the International Federation for Theatre Research: Influencing Beckett / Beckett Influencing (L'Harmattan, 2020) and Beckett's Voices / Voicing Beckett (Brill, 2021). He has published widely in journals and edited collections on adaptations and intermedial performances of Beckett, directing and acting Beckett, Beckett and censorship, and the use of performance as a tool for research.
The School of Creative Arts Research Forum meets weekly on Mondays from 10am-11am in the Neill Lecture Theatre in Trinity Long Room Hub. The aim of the Forum is to provide a space for School researchers, both staff and postgraduate students, to share their ideas in an informal and supportive environment. It is also an opportunity for the School to hear about the research of colleagues both from within TCD and from outside the university who share our research interests. In line with the research agenda of the School, talks encompass traditional research and practice-based research.
