Here is the call for papers for the International Virginia Woolf Society’s guaranteed panel at MLA 2017, held Jan. 5-8 in Philadelphia. Both align with the theme “Virginia Woolf Scholars Come to Their Senses.”
Two possible approaches are being offered:
- papers addressing sense modalities in Woolf’s writing. How and to what end does Woolf evoke sensory experiences of smell, touch and taste in her writing?
- papers offering or debating “corrective” readings of Woolf that suggest some kind of “progress” in Woolf criticism. Have earlier readings, such as poststructuralist or lesbian, been supplanted by contemporary approaches, or do we need a model other than “progression” to address Woolf’s critical heritage?
Abstracts of between 250-500 words should be sent by March 21 to Pamela Caughie at firstname.lastname@example.org. (Please note the “e” is dropped in Caughie). Participants must be MLA members by April 7, 2016.

The electronic version of Spring/Summer 2015 Virginia Woolf Miscellany is now available to view online or download and print, says Editor Vara Neverow.
Edited and with an introduction by Erica Delsandro, the issue includes fascinating essays on Woolf in the context of the 1930s, diverse articles and a review of the performance of Septimus and Clarissa from the Twenty Fifth Annual Conference on Virginia Woolf. A section of the issue is also devoted to heartfelt remembrances of Shari Benstock and Jane Marcus.
The issue also includes seven book reviews, important information about upcoming Woolf conferences, and information about various Woolf societies. The issue, as always, concludes with the Society Column, written this time by the International Virginia Woolf Society’s President, Kristin Czarnecki.
At the dinner, which was held Jan. 11, 2014, at Shaw’s Crab House in Chicago, Woolf common readers and scholars were asked to share the experience that sparked their interest in the 20th-century modernist writer.
Many stories and much laughter ensued. Feel free to share your story as a comment below.
