While the 21st Annual International Conference on Virginia Woolf: Contradictory Woolf will kick off less than a week, plans for the 22nd Annual International Conference on Virginia Woolf: Interdisciplinary/Multidisciplinary Woolf are ramping up.
The 22nd conference website is now live, and the plans already formulated sound pretty exciting.
Plenary speakers include:
- Leslie K. Hankins, Cornell College
- Alexandra Harris, University of Liverpool and author of Romantic Moderns: English Writers, Artists and the Imagination from Virginia Woolf to John Piper, which won the Guardian First Book Award last year. Harris also has plans in the works for two other books.
- Maggie Humm, University of East London
- Organizers of the Orlando Project
- Susan Brown, University of Guelph / University of Alberta
- Patricia Clements, University of Alberta
- Isobel Grundy, University Alberta
- Brenda Silver, Dartmouth College
According to the conference website, the theme is “inspired by Woolf’s efforts to cross, undermine, and sometimes reassert disciplinary and other boundaries in her body of work. Conference organizers welcome scholars, teachers, students, readers, activists, community groups and artists who respond to Woolf and her circle from diverse points of view. Of particular interest are interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches to Woolf, whether in the form of research, pedagogy and creative work or community or institutional activities.”
A call for papers will be circulated this summer, and more details about the program and events will be posted soon.
