The long-term vision for the Mary Bryden Samuel Beckett Studentship is to nurture and support the next generation of Beckett Scholars who will, in perpetuity, promote interdisciplinary research on Beckett and promote his relevance to global issues, from issues such as mental health to “post-truth” politics. As part of the aim of the Mary Bryden Samuel Beckett Studentship, we would like the recipient to work in the Beckett archives at Special Collections, University of Reading, in order to increase their own skills and experience, and to enable the production of unique and original research in the final thesis.
It will be a requirement that the holder of the Mary Bryden Studentship take an active leadership role (up to 6 hours per week) in regard to the world-leading Beckett Collection at Special Collections. This role might involve (but is not restricted to) hosting visiting scholars; introducing visitors to the archive; and/or the opportunity to lead workshops and public exhibitions. Full mentorship will be provided for this aspect of the Studentship requirement.
