Beckett and Brain Science is a research project led by Dr Elizabeth Barry (University of Warwick), Dr Ulrika Maude (University of Reading) and Dr Laura Salisbury (Birkbeck, University of London). It is funded by an AHRC Science and Culture Exploratory Award, and explores the interconnections between neurological and psychiatric conceptions of language, embodiment and the self in the work of Samuel Beckett.

The symposium will be held in the conference room of the University of Reading Special Collections. The building housing Special Collections and the Museum of English Rural Life is located in Redlands Road.
