The program committee for the 30th Annual International Conference on Virginia Woolf: Profession and Performance has extended its submission deadline for the call for papers and will accept proposals until Feb. 10. The conference will be held June 11-14 at the University of South Dakota in Vermillion.

Below is information provided by email from conference organizers.

Top four plenary events

Conference organizers have lined up four plenary events.

The conference will include a plenary performance. Ellen McLaughlin and Kathleen Chalfant have collaborated and will present THE PARTY—a one-woman play written by McLaughlin that weaves together three stories Woolf wrote while working on Mrs. Dalloway – “The New Dress,” “Together and Apart,” and “A Summing Up.”  All three stories take place at Mrs. Dalloway’s party.  All the words are Woolf’s, and all the characters are played by Chalfant. Organizers say they are also hatching an additional performance piece.

Carrie Rohman of Lafayette College will deliver a plenary lecture. Check out her recent Print Plus article on Isadora Duncan’s “Creatural Aesthetics”. Rohman is also the author of two brilliant studies: Stalking the Subject: Modernism and the Animal (2009) and Choreographies of the Living: Bioaesthetics in Literature, Art, and Performance (2018).

Mark Hussey of Pace University; Urmila Seshagiri of U of Tennessee, Knoxville; Drew Shannon of Mount St. Joseph U; and Jean Moorcroft Wilson of U of London will join us for a plenary panel. The panel will cover a range of issues that will thread through the topics of “Archive, Edition, Life.” See more about them and their work.

The fourth event is a plenary dialogue between Aarthi Vadde and Melanie Micir—co-authors of the award-winning essay, “Obliterature: Toward an Amateur Criticism” (2018). Their individual research projects include Vadde’s prize-winning Chimeras of Form: Modernist Internationalism Beyond Europe, 1914–2016 (2017) and Micir’s book, The Passion Projects: Modernist Women, Intimate Archives, Unfinished Lives (2019).

We’re also organizing some pre- and post-conference workshops, so if you wish to come early and/or stay late, you’ll definitely want to participate in these. 

Vermilion, South Dakota and USD welcome you

Conference organizers wrote, “And one more thing: We want to be clear. We are not our legislature. The University of South Dakota and Vermillion will provide a safe, cozy, welcoming place to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Annual International Conference on Virginia Woolf. We’re going to have a lot of fun, take care of, and learn so much from each other.”

Are you a feminist scholar? If so, you may want to know about two calls for papers offered by the feminist journal Signs: : Journal of Women in Culture and Society.

The 2021 Catharine Stimpson Prize for Outstanding Feminist Scholarship

The University of Chicago Press and Signs announce the competition for the 2021 Catharine Stimpson Prize for Outstanding Feminist Scholarship. Named in honor of the founding editor of Signs, the prize recognizes excellence and innovation in the work of emerging feminist scholars.

It is awarded biennially to the best paper in an international competition. Leading feminist scholars from around the globe will select the winner. The prizewinning paper will be published in Signs, and the author will be provided an honorarium of $1,000. All papers submitted for the Stimpson Prize will be considered for peer review and possible publication in the journal.

Eligibility: Feminist scholars in the early years of their careers (fewer than seven years since receipt of the terminal degree) are invited to submit papers for the Stimpson Prize. This includes current graduate students. Papers may be on any topic that falls under the broad rubric of interdisciplinary feminist scholarship. Submissions must be no longer than 10,000 words (including notes and references) and must conform to the guidelines for Signs contributors.

Deadline for Submissions: March 1, 2020.

Please submit papers online at http://signs.edmgr.com. Be sure to indicate submission for consideration for the Catharine Stimpson Prize. The honorarium will be awarded upon publication of the prizewinning article.

Signs Special Issue: Rethinking “First Wave” Feminisms

During the past several decades, scholarship in a variety of disciplines has challenged the “wave” model of feminism. Inspired by the 2020 centennial of the Nineteenth Amendment, this special issue seeks to rethink “first wave” feminisms in a heterogeneous and expansive way—by pushing geographic, chronological, and ideological boundaries and by broadening the definition of whom we usually think of as early feminists. While contributions on the Nineteenth Amendment in the United States, and the suffrage movement worldwide, are welcome, the publication also encourages submissions that consider early manifestations of feminism and feminist movements in broad and global terms. Scholars from all disciplines are encouraged to submit their work.

The editors invite essays that consider the questions you will find here.

Deadline for submissions: Sept. 15, 2020. The issue will be guest edited by Susan Ware, general editor of the American National Biography and Honorary Women’s Suffrage Centennial Historian at the Schlesinger Library, and Katherine Marino, assistant professor of history at UCLA.

Please submit full manuscripts electronically through Signs’ Editorial Manager system at http://signs.edmgr.com. Manuscripts must conform to the guidelines for submission available at http://signsjournal.org/for-authors/author-guidelines/.
