Each volume includes a broad selection of panel presentations and featured speakers, a complete conference program, and an introduction by the editors. Selected Papers 10 includes a name and subject index for all ten volumes.

Selected Papers from the Eighth Annual Conference on Virginia Woolf

Virginia Woolf and Communities offers new insights into traditional Woolfian communities (such as Bloomsbury) as well as innovative alternative communities of writers, readers, and artists. Among the keynote speakers are Tuzyline Allan, Rachel Bowlby, Marianne DeKoven, and Vara Neverow. Featured highlights in this volume reproduce special conversations among artists on their communion with Woolf: discussion and critique of the film Paris Was A Woman, and the conversations that take place while reading and teaching Woolf. New voices address Woolf and technology, Woolf read through the lens of trauma theory, the impact of Woolf’s work on Spanish-American women writers, and the letters Woolf received in response to Three Guineas. This volume continues the tradition of vibrant new creative work and scholarship on Woolf by artists, common readers, students, and scholars from around the world.
