Modern Language Association 2018, scheduled for Jan. 4-7 in New York City, will include Virginia Woolf.
The International Virginia Woolf Society will have one guaranteed panel. The organization can also submit one additional panel, which is often accepted but not guaranteed. In addition, the group will collaborate with another allied organization and submit a third panel.
Members of the MLA and the IVWS are invited to submit one panel topic — not an individual paper proposal — for MLA 2018. The proposal should include the following:
- A maximum 35-word description of the panel. The word count includes the title.
- The name(s) and contact information of the proposed organizer(s).
Please submit your proposal via email to Christine Czarnecki, president of the IVWS at Kristin_Czarnecki@georgetowncollege.edu. Use the subject line: Woolf MLA 2018.
Deadline for submission: Nov. 14, 2016.
Once the proposals are in, Czarnecki will send them out to the IVWS membership for a vote. If you wish to propose your own special session outside of the IVWS process, please visit the MLA website for more details.
A special Woolf gathering
Members interested in attending the traditional IVWS gathering at the MLA—a dinner to be held either Friday, Jan. 6, 2018, or Saturday, Jan. 7, 2018, should contact Czarnecki so she can consider that when making the booking.
