Organizers of the 22nd Annual International Conference on Virginia Woolf: Interdisciplinary/Multidisciplinary Woolf have issued a call for papers for the conference, which will be held June 7-10, 2012, at the University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, Canada.

Some collaboration has to take place in the mind . . . before the art of creation can be accomplished.  Some marriage of opposites has to be consummated.  The whole of the mind must lie wide open – A Room of One’s Own

We have come together…to make one thing, not enduring—for what endures?—but seen by many eyes simultaneously.  – The Waves

This conference invites explorations of Virginia Woolf’s work from a range of different disciplinary perspectives and practices.  We welcome proposals on any aspect of Woolf studies, and especially papers or performances that:

  • respond to Virginia Woolf and her texts from interdisciplinary or multidisciplinary approaches;
  • respond to the inter- and multidisciplinary work carried out by Virginia Woolf and her circle; and/or
  • respond to the implications of Virginia Woolf’s work by applying its themes and claims to other disciplinary, institutional, social, or cultural contexts.
