Leadership

The Board of Directors of The Eugene O’Neill International Society meets annually in conjunction with  national drama and theatre conferences, or via Zoom. The Board also meets at the Society's International Conference (typically every three years).  The O’Neill Society sponsors scholarly and performance-related panels annually at the American Literature Association (ALA) annual conference, the Comparative Drama Conference (CDC), and the Modern Language Association (MLA) conference, and sometimes at other literature or theatre conferences.
