Postgraduate Studies in Beckett
Supporting the work of the Beckett International Foundation, there are Beckett specialists in the Department of English Literature and the French, Philosophy and Film, Theatre & Television Departments. Beckett’s work features on several undergraduate and MA courses. There is a lively postgraduate community at Reading, which benefits from the Beckett collection as well as the expertise of Beckett scholars working in a variety of fields. Postgraduates wishing to study Beckett’s work are invited to contact the relevant departments, or to contact the Foundation for further advice.

Scholars and students working in Reading are engaged in a number of exciting research projects, many of which are international, collaborative initiatives.
