Samuel Beckett’s relationship to his native country continues to be one of the most exciting areas within Beckett studies, evident in the growing number of publications dealing with this concern and in the enthusiastic responses to this year’s UCD Beckett and the State of Ireland Conference and the inaugural Samuel Beckett Summer School held at Trinity College. Following the success of the 2011 conference, the organisers of Beckett and the State of Ireland are pleased to announce that the event will take place in 2012 on Friday July 13 and Saturday July 14. A central objective of the conference is to facilitate an interface between understandings of Beckett in Irish studies and those which circulate in the wider Beckett community.
