Woolf and the City: Selected Papers from the Nineteenth Annual Conference on Virginia Woolf is now available from the Clemson University Press.
Edited by Elizabeth F. Evans and Sarah E. Cornish, the volume collects important essays chosen from the nearly 200 papers delivered at the Nineteenth Annual International Conference on Virginia Woolf, hosted at Fordham University.
The 25 essays are organized around six themes:
- Navigating London
- Spatial Perceptions and the Cityscape
- Regarding Others
- The Literary Public Sphere
- Border Crossings and Liminal Landscapes
- Teaching Woolf, Woolf Teaching
The volume also includes all of the keynote speeches, along with a transcript of the panel “Inspired by Woolf” that featured Katherine Lanpher, Dr. Ruth Gruber, Susan Sellers and Kris Lundberg. Megan Branch, who also writes for Blogging Woolf, crafted the introduction for the piece and prepared the transcript.
Contributors include Molly Hite, Mark Hussey, Tamar Katz, Eleanor McNees, Kathryn Simpson and Rishona Zimring.
In the interests of full disclosure, my essay, “Woolf in the Cyber City: Connecting in the Virtual Public Square,” is included in the volume.
