Here is a call for papers for a special topics issue (#92, Fall 2017) of the Virginia Woolf vw miscellany summer 15Miscellany on Woolf and Indigenous Literatures:

Virginia Woolf and Indigenous Literatures

This issue of VWM seeks essays that consider Woolf’s oeuvre in dialogue with works by Native American, First Nations, Australian, and New Zealander authors, among others.

  • 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, kristin_czarnecki@georgetowncollege.edu.

Submission Deadline: March 31, 2017.

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:

    • originality of contribution to Woolf Studies
    • engagement with relevant scholarship
    • the quality of writing and presentation.

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.
