Joyce to Beckett: Ireland and Modernism – a two-day conference at Magdalene College, Cambridge, 22-23 March 2018

A major, international, two-day conference, JOYCE TO BECKETT: IRELAND AND MODERNISM, with participants – several from the English Faculty – chosen by John Kerrigan will be held at Magdalene College on 22-23 March.

The distinguished line-up of speakers includes many of the leading figures in Irish studies across several generations, as well as creative writers and actors.  While the main focus will be on the two greatest Irish modernist writers, Joyce and Beckett, contributors will also consider other modern Irish writers and the appropriateness or otherwise of ‘modernism’ as a category in poetry, fiction, drama and the visual arts.

Late registration still open.
