The annual Modern Language Association convention for 2022 takes place at in Washington DC this year although many of its sessions will be held virtually because of the intrusion of the Covid pandemic. The Samuel Beckett Society panel will be held on-line and will therefore be accessible to as wide an audience as possible internationally.


This years session is titled Multilingual Beckett: Between Self and Global Translation and will feature what promises to be a fascinating line up of international scholarship. The contributors and paper titles are:

‘Je est un autre’: Beckett, Not I, and Translingual Appropriation
Juliette Taylor-Batty, Leeds Trinity University, United Kingdom

Nineteen Years of Multilingual Fragments: From the ‘The Gloaming’ to Rough for Theatre I
Shane O’Neill, Mary Immaculate College, Limerick, Ireland.

Abstractifying Allusions for a Multilingual World
Thirthankar Chakraborty, Indian Institute of Technology, Bhilai, India

The session is scheduled for Saturday 8 January 2022 at 8:30 AM EST.
