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.

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, January 31, 2019

Marilynne Robinson has written widely-acclaimed novels and essays that explore the relationship between religion and culture.   Marilynne Robinson Society at the 2019 American Literature Association (ALA) Conference is soliticing proposals that examine how recent developments in post-secular studies can illuminate Robinson’s religious vision. Jurgen Habermas, Talal Asad, Charles Taylor, Jared Hickman, Tracy Fessensden, among other scholars, have led us to reconsider the secularization thesis and the ways in which it has shaped narratives of modernity. We ask how Robinson’s investigation of faith is especially relevant to the growing field of postsecular studies.
