Samuel Beckett Summer School

The Samuel Beckett Summer School provides a unique experience for students, scholars and lovers of Beckett’s works. Each year we invite the world’s foremost Beckett scholars to present new lectures and seminars on all aspects of Beckett’s works. The School appeals to a wide range of Beckett enthusiasts by providing the opportunity to experience, savour and study Beckett’s works in the university where he began his intellectual life.

The Summer School is different from an academic conference in that it is not purely a gathering by specialists for other specialists. Instead, we aim to engage and explore Beckett’s works from a variety of different perspectives in order to examine and re-examine Beckett’s evolving legacy and relevance. The aim of the Summer School is to look at Beckett in an open and pluralist fashion and to consider all of the numerous contexts of his work that are of interest both to the scholar and to the general reader.

We are proud to present a varied public programme of events during the Samuel Beckett Summer School. Featuring leading artists and academics, these talks and performances aim to give audiences a rare insight into the life and works of Samuel Beckett.

The Beckett Summer School is a core activity of the Trinity Centre for Beckett Studies, based at the Trinity Long Room Hub.
