Over the past 15 years, 'Memory', 'Commemoration', and 'Forgetting' have
become vital concepts in the humanities. They have been discussed from
national as well as transnational perspectives across a wide range of
disciplines. In roughly the same time span, the notion of 'Gender' has
received similarly augmented interdisciplinary attention, eventually leading
to the concept's academic institutionalisation in a number of countries.

Beckett Studies has changed radically since Richard Gilman claimed that Beckett's imagination worked "almost entirely outside history". In recent years, much work has been done to recover the relevant social and cultural contexts for Beckett's work, and this process has been greatly expedited by continuing efforts to disseminate the contents of the many drafts and manuscripts housed in the archives.
