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.

Please submit your paper to Woolf2016@leedstrinity.ac.uk by Aug. 10, 2016.
Submissions should be 3,000-3,500 words, including Endnotes and Works Cited.

The Selected Papers will feature twenty-five papers from the panel sessions, alongside some of the plenary talks. The selection of papers will be based on the following criteria:

- the currency/relevance of the paper beyond the conference
- originality of contribution to Woolf Studies
- engagement with relevant scholarship

Technical note on illustrations
Illustrations can be supplied as electronic files, of which TIFF files are best. Illustrations need to be at least 300dpi (dots per inch) at the size at which they are to be reproduced: i.e. a postage stamp image at 300 dpi is no good unless it is being reproduced at postage stamp size, as by the time it is blown up it will lose resolution. Images can be scaled down to fit, but not scaled up too much unless the resolution is very high.
Scans need to be gray scale or CMYK. If RGB scans are supplied we will convert them into CMYK for the printers, but the colour may alter a bit. So if the illustration needs to be accurate to an original photograph or painting, you must supply CMYK scans with the colour corrected to your satisfaction.
When submitting electronic files for your illustrations, please also submit a visual hard copy reference as well, clearly labelled with its figure number as well as a caption.

Posted in call for papers, On Being Ill, Virginia Woolf, tagged call for papers, On Being Ill, Virginia Woolf, Virginia Woolf Miscellany, Woolf and illness on Wednesday 30 March 2016 | Leave a Comment »
“Woolf and Illness,” the special topics issue of the Virginia Woolf Miscellany, has issued a call for papers with a submission deadline of July 15, 2016. Issue #90 will be published in the fall.
Virginia Woolf’s 1926 essay “On Being Ill” questions why illness has failed to feature as a prime theme of literature, alongside love, battle, and jealousy. This issue of VWM seeks contributions on Woolf’s exploration of illness in her life and work, as a paradigm for reexamining modernist literature and art, and its influence on subsequent writers.
Topics might include questions such as: How does the literature of illness challenge or enhance theories of trauma, narrative ethics, and disability studies? How does Woolf’s focus on the politics and aesthetics of the ill body inform our understanding of the period, including in relation to Victorian values, in relation to the 1918-19 flu pandemic, and in relation to mechanized modernity’s drive toward professionalization and specialization? How has the contemporary literary landscape changed to contribute to the popularity of Woolf’s focus — from the success of the medical humanities to the proliferation of autopathographies? What might be inspiring or potentially problematic in Woolf’s theory of illness as a site for creative rebellion?
Send submissions of no more than 2,500 words by 15 July 2016 to: Cheryl Hindrichs at email@example.com
The due date for submissions to the spring 2016 issue of the Virginia Woolf Miscellany is Oct. 15.
