It’s day one of the 29th Annual International Conference on Virginia Woolf, with its theme of social justice, at the University of Mount Saint Joseph in Cincinnati.

Beth Rigel Daugherty, Leslie Hankins and Diane Gillespie presented a panel on “Portraying and Projecting Age, Ageism, and Activism” on day one.

The agenda was full with registration; an opening session; three breakout sessions, each with a choice of six panels ranging from Woolf and race to Queering Woolf; and a plenary session with Dr. Elizabeth Abel of UC Berkeley on “The Smashed Mosaic: Virginia Woolf and African American Modernism.”

The day ended with “Hours in a Library,” a wine and cheese reception at the Mercantile Library in downtown Cincinnati, where conference participants met and mingled among the books.

Take a look at the place where readers, writers, and thinkers have gathered since 1835.
