Staging Ireland’s Dispossessed

Sarah Jane Scaife’s Beckett in the City Project

Anna McMullan

This article explores the tension between the growing cultural capital of the Beckett ‘brand’ and the issues of dispossession which are at the heart of Beckett’s work through an investigation of selected productions from the Beckett in the City project, a series of site-specific performances of Beckett’s work directed by Sarah Jane Scaife. The discussion of Dublin performances of Act Without Words II (2013) and Beckett in the City: the Women Speak (2015) in marginalized urban spaces draws on writing by Judith Butler and Athena Athanasiou on dispossession.

Samuel Beckett Today / Aujourd'hui

A Bilingual Review / Revue Bilingue

A refereed bilingual journal, Samuel Beckett Today / Aujourd’hui (SBT/A) has established itself as one of the leading international journals in the dynamic field of Beckett studies. A guiding principle of the journal is its openness to diverse disciplinary domains, theoretical perspectives, and discourse styles of scholars writing on Beckett. Bilingual since its inception, it aims to foster dialogue across languages, cultures, and disciplines.
The SBT/A accepts submissions of individual articles in English and French at any moment, and publishes these on a regular basis twice a year after peer-reviewing. Proposals for thematic issues, whether based on conferences or not, are welcome; articles in these dossiers are peer-reviewed according to the same procedure as individual articles. Free space (for accepted individual articles that have been accepted for publication) is available in each issue.
The Samuel Beckett Today / Aujourd’hui was published as book series until end of 2015. All back volumes are still available in print.

La revue bilingue Samuel Beckett Today / Aujourd’hui, a su se faire reconnaître comme une des revues internationales de pointe dans le domaine très dynamique des études beckettiennes. L’un des principes directeurs de cette revue est son ouverture à la diversité des champs d’étude, des perspectives théoriques et des approches stylistiques des chercheurs travaillant sur Beckett. Bilingue depuis sa fondation, la revue cherche à encourager le dialogue entre les langues, les cultures et les disciplines différentes. La revue accueille des propositions en anglais et en français provenant de tous les coins du monde, pourvu que celles-ci, en s’inscrivant dans la liste déjà longue des études sur Beckett, contribuent à apporter une compréhension nouvelle de cette œuvre, tout en répondant aux critères requis de lisibilité et de sérieux scientifique. Les propositions sont soumises au contrôle évaluatif par les pairs.
Samuel Beckett Today / Aujourd’hui a été publié comme une collection de livres jusqu'à la fin 2015. Les volumes déjà parus restent disponibles en version imprimée.
