The International Virginia Woolf Society is issuing a call for proposals for the Virginia Woolf panel at the 2013 Modern Language Association Conference in Boston Jan. 3-6.
The proposal garnering the most votes from the IVWS will be part of the 2013 MLA conference program. The runner-up will be submitted by the IVWS to the MLA as a second panel, which MLA may or may not approve. IVWS voting on the proposals will be completed in November, so as to meet MLA deadlines. A call will then go out to the society for papers to be submitted for the panels.
A panel proposal should include:
- A 35 word description (word count includes title)
- The name(s) and contact information of the proposed organizer(s).
Submit to Georgia Johnston by email at IVWSociety@gmail.com or U.S. mail at Georgia Johnston, Department of English, Adorjan 127
Saint Louis University, 3800 Lindell Blvd., St. Louis, MO 63108.
Electronic submission is strongly preferred. Email submissions should have Woolf MLA 2013 in the subject line.
Deadline: Monday, Oct.31, 2011, for the receipt of panel proposals.
