The Eugene O’Neill Society will be coming home to the very place the Society was founded and housed for many years, Suffolk University, for its next International Conference, now scheduled for June 17-20, 2020. Suffolk University is located in the heart of Boston’s downtown and close to several attractions, historical landmarks, and outstanding restaurants. Conference co-chairs are Steven Bloom and Beth Wynstra, both Boston-area residents, will be planning all year for this event, held traditionally every three years at a site that held meaning to O’Neill in some capacity. Nearby Cambridge is where O’Neill studied playwriting with Professor George Pierce Baker, but he also had a home just north of the city, and Shelton Hall (once the Shelton Hotel and now at Boston University) is where he spent his last days. Treks to important O’Neill locations in and around Boston will be part of the Conference events, as well as several sessions of academic papers with the newest scholarship on O’Neill and related subjects, theatre performances, and much more.
