It is a critical commonplace that Shakespeare in many ways relied on and produced various forms of translations – translations of foreign words, translations of literary texts, translations from one medium into another, to name but a few. Over time, Shakespeare’s works themselves have become some of the most widely translated texts in world literature. As of today, his works have been translated into more than 100 languages. Moreover, his plays and poems have travelled across time and space, and they have been re-translated time and again in order to adapt them for contemporary audiences. More often than not, such translations also raise questions about the original works and their socio-cultural as well as literary contexts.

The Ballard Institute’s Living Objects: African American Puppetry Symposium
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.
