Woolf’’s Rooms will be held Sunday 16 July to Friday 21 July 2017. This five days of immersion in Woolf will include lectures by Gillian Beer, Jane Potter, Alison Hennegan, Trudi Tate, and Claire Nicholson.
Works to be studied include A Room of One’s Own, Jacob’s Room, The Waves, To the Lighthouse, and Between the Acts. We will spend a day on each book with a lecture and supervision, with further opportunities for participants to discuss the works with fellow students, visit places important to Woolf, and do more reading on your own.
Reading Bloomsbury will be held Sunday 23 July to Friday 28 July 2017. Lectures
on Vanessa Bell, Virginia Woolf, Maynard Keynes, Lytton Strachey, and Leonard Woolf will be given by Frances Spalding, Alison Hennegan, Trudi Tate, Claudia Tobin (tbc) and Claire Nicholson.
The course will include lectures, supervisions, and excursions, such as a trip to Bloomsbury with an expert guide and a visit to the lovely Orchard Tea Room at Grantchester.
More about the courses
Courses start early Sunday evening, so students are advised to arrive in Cambridge by early afternoon. The courses finish late Friday evening with a formal dinner. Departure is Saturday morning.
The courses aim to complement one another without overlapping. Students are welcome to enroll for either or both. They are advised to book early if they wish to attend both courses and require Homerton accommodation for the Saturday night between the two courses.
A discounted price is available up to 16 December 2016. After that date, members of the Virginia Woolf Society of Great Britain can still get a special discount.
