The dates for the 2018 Beckett Summer School will be Sunday 29th July to Friday 3rd August 2018 (arrive on 29th, depart on 4th). It will be followed by the second Student Symposium of the Beckett Summer School, on Sunday 5th August 2018, an optional add-on for any participants who wish to produce or present their own research in the days following the school. The summer school hopes to develop a credit-bearing component for future development, and hopes that this opportunity makes student engagement more viable (and may open up additional pathways for students to fund their visit to the school).
