Welcome to the Samuel Beckett Summer School

The Samuel Beckett Summer School, founded in 2011, should have celebrated its anniversary in 2021 but has been left in a hiatus since 2019 because of the global pandemic. Having reviewed the wonderful work of the previous ten years and taken into account the new realities of a life altered by recent events, it has been decided that a new format for the school will be undertaken, designed to enhance accessibility and participation for all. An announcement outlining the plans for the events of 2022 will be made shortly and communicated throughout the Beckett world.

We thank you for your patient support and ask you to watch this space for exciting news.

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.
