Three decades after his death in 1989, Samuel Beckett remains one of the most influential figures in modern and contemporary drama. This panel seeks to examine plays written “after Beckett”: that is, plays written since 1989 which stage an intertextual conversation with one or more of Beckett’s plays. I will be presenting a paper on Antoinette Nwandu’s 2017 play Pass Over. I am looking for two additional papers to complete the panel.

Byron Caminero-Santangelo and Garth A. Myers describe peripheral African environments as “Environment at the Margins” in the book of the same title. The field of postcolonial ecocriticism, which has been flourishing over the past one decade, is now widely perceived to be an interdisciplinary, transnational, and comparative field of inquiry as it recognizes the complexities of interdisciplinary dialogues and critiques a universalizing or homogenizing impulse of capitalism, colonialism, and imperialism.

HEALING THE MIND/BODY/SOUL: COMMUNITY, ACTIVISM, AND JUSTICE IN EDUCATION
