Vara Neverow, professor of English and women’s studies at Southern Connecticut State University and editor of the Virginia Woolf Miscellany, has created a Web page tracking the history of the Annual International Conference on Virginia Woolf.
Mark Hussey organized and hosted the first annual Woolf event at Pace University in New York City in 1991. Since then, the conference has been held at a different university or college every year.
The page is a work in progress, according to Neverow, but it already includes information about Woolf conferences dating from 1995 as far into the future as 2015. Links to conference Web pages are available beginning with the 2001 conference, “Voyages Out, Voyages Home,” which was held at the University of Wales in the UK.
The site also provides access to selected papers from the annual Woolf conferences. These include:
- The first 10 volumes, initiated by Hussey, published in print format by Pace University Press and dating from 1991 through 2000.
- Beginning in 2001, Wayne Chapman at Clemson University Digital Press began to publish the selected papers electronically as well as in print-on-demand format. They can be read online in PDF format.
