Peter Fifield, Modernism/modernity

In June 2011, the conference “Samuel Beckett: Out of the Archives” took place at the University of York in the United Kingdom. The conference gave academics an opportunity to take up the question of how to place Beckett as a late modernist. The journal Modernism/modernity recently published a special issue dedicated to papers presented at the conference. Peter Fifield, conference organizer and Junior Research Fellow in English at St. John’s College at Oxford University, joins us to talk about Beckett.
