This is the last call to submit a panel topic for the Modern Language Association Convention in Chicago, scheduled for Jan. 9-12, top_mla_logo2014. The deadline was slightly extended due to individuals having the flu.

The International Virginia Woolf Society will have one guaranteed panel, and the group can submit one additional panel, as it did for the 2013 MLA Convention in Boston with the Katherine Mansfield Society. It may also (as for this past MLA with the Joseph Conrad Society) collaborate with another Allied Organization and submit a third panel.

Organizers would like to continue the tradition of submitting multiple excellent panel proposals. Note that this is a call for panels, not individual paper proposals. Please submit only one topic.

What you should submit:

  1. a 35-word description (word count includes title)
  2. the name(s) and contact information of the proposed organizer(s). [email addresses required.] Note: It can be quite helpful to have more than one organizer, especially if seasonal illness strikes

Submit to Leslie Kathleen Hankins electronically at lhankins@cornellcollege.edu or by mail. Electronic submissions are strongly preferred. The topic line should read: Woolf MLA 2014.

Deadline: Jan. 15 for the receipt of proposals.

The IVWS will vote on the resulting proposals in January, so as to meet MLA deadlines.

If you wish to propose your own special session outside of the IVWS process, please go to the MLA website, http://www.mla.org.

I told you that people who attended Woolf and the City were buzzed.

Madelyn Detloff, vice president of the International Virginia Woolf Society, barely stepped off the Fordham University campus after the conference before creating a Facebook page for the society. And one day after her announcement of the IVWS page, it already had 60 fans. Talk about high-flying energy!

If you already have a Facebook account, you can become a fan of the IVWS on Facebook. If not, create an account now.

If you are concerned about privacy, don’t worry. You can control the people who see your own Facebook page, and you can determine exactly what they see as well.

As a member of the IVWS group, you can be part of the society’s ongoing conversation about Woolf, view and post photos, share links and news and hook up with other Woolfians around the world.

Remember that you can be part of the conversation here on Blogging Woolf as well. Please feel free to post your thoughts. Just scroll down to the comments link below each post and go at it.
