The London Beckett Seminar at the Institute of English Studies brings together national and international scholars, researchers and postgraduates to discuss issues arising from the prose, theatre and poetry of Samuel Beckett that pertain to aspects of literary, philosophical and historical analysis with particular attention to translation studies, performance and practice, digital humanities and visual cultures. Inherently interdisciplinary in approach, the seminar establishes a vibrant research network for postgraduate students, early-career researchers, and established academics on a national and international level.

In previous years, the London Beckett Seminars have explored a wide range of topics, with seminar themes such as: ‘Wordly Corrasion: Philology and Narrative in Worstward Ho’, ‘Beckett and WW2: Translating Godot and Erasing the War’ and ‘Beckett and Speculative Realism’.
