The new deadline of June 30 has been set for the upcoming special issue of Virginia Woolf Miscellany (#92, Fall 2017). It seeks essays considering Woolf’s oeuvre in dialogue with works by Native American, First Nations, Australian, and New Zealander authors, among others.
Questions to consider:
- What kind of dialogic emerges when placing Woolf’s writings alongside those of indigenous writers?
- How might indigenous literatures enhance interpretations of Woolf’s modernist, feminist, and pacifist poetics?
- How might such comparisons affect or inform understandings of subjectivity in women’s lives and literature, and the interconnections between narrative innovation and socio-political activism?
- Does Woolf’s ecological vision align with those of indigenous writers responding to threats of global destruction and mass extinctions?
- Could such comparative and intersectional work chip away at the boundaries still often imposed upon literary studies-the “West” versus the “Rest”?
Other approaches are welcome.
How to submit: Please send submissions of no more than 2,500 words, including notes and works cited, in the latest version of Word to: Kristin Czarnecki, email@example.com.
Deadline for submission: Extended to June 30.
