This year’s MLA Convention is being held in San Franciso, California from 5-8 January, and continues the recent trend of combining in-person and on-line panels. The annual Samuel Beckett Society panel will be held virtually and can be accessed world-wide by those registered for the convention. The panel, which will take place at 8:30 to 9:45 PST promises a particularly rich discussion under the rubric Beckett and the Work of Care featuring the following participants:
Elizabeth Barry (University of Warwick]: ‘The Salvation Army Is No Better’: Beckett, Aging, and the Ambivalent Work of Care.
Swati Joshi (Indian Inst. of Tech., Gandhinagar): Caring Nurses and Nursing Care in Beckettopia
Molly Crozier (U of Liverpool): Care, Need, and Gendered Labour in Endgame and Happy Days
Laura Salisbury (U of Exeter]: Waiting for Beckett: Suspended Time as the Work of Care.
The panel will be chaired by Feargal Whelan (Trinity College Dublin).
