In our first live recording, Professor Eve Patten, Director of the Trinity Long Room Hub will sit down with Leah Kenny to talk about her journey to education and how an opportunity with Trinity’s Access Programme led her to an English studies programme and a love of Samuel Beckett.

Leah wrote her final year thesis on Beckett and his work as part of her undergraduate degree and is currently working as a teacher. Her portrait stood alongside that of Samuel Beckett, as part of a giant mural in front square in 2019 to promote Trinity’s new philanthropic campaign, Inspiring Generations. Leah hopes that she can inspire more young people to seek out and not be afraid of literature like Beckett’s.

This event will be introduced Professor Lorraine Leeson, School of Linguistic, Speech and Communication Sciences and Associate Vice Provost of Equality, Diversity & Inclusion in Trinity College Dublin.

This talk will be broadcast on Wednesday 24th of November at 4.30pm on Near FM.
