Here is the basic information about next year’s Virginia Woolf conference, the 26th Annual International Conference on Virginia Woolf: Woolf and Heritage, which will be held June 16-19, 2016, at Leeds Trinity University in Leeds, England.
According to the conference website:
“This conference will investigate how Woolf engaged with heritage, and how she understood and represented it. One strand will look at her experience of the heritage industry, for example: libraries, museums, art galleries, authors’ houses, artists’ houses, stately homes, London’s heritage sites, and tourist sites in Britain and abroad.
“Alternatively, the topic encompasses Woolf’s constructions of heritage, including literary heritage, intellectual heritage, the history of women and the history of lesbians. The conference will also consider ways in which Woolf has been represented and even appropriated by the heritage industry, for example in virtual and physical exhibitions; libraries, archives and collections; plaques, memorials, and statues; and at National Trust or other properties such as Monk’s House and Knole.”
Location: Leeds Trinity University, Brownberrie Lane LS18 5HD, Leeds, England.
Dates: Thursday, June 16 – Sunday, June 19, 2016
