For the 18th Annual International Conference on Virginia Woolf, Pat Colliers is seeking papers for a panel that looks at ways of bringing the insights and methodologies of recent work in early 20th century periodical studies to bear on the life and work of Virginia Woolf.

The conference, with the theme “Woolf Editing/Editing Woolf,” will be held June 19–22, 2008, at the University of Denver in Denver, Colorado.

According to Colliers, possibilities for the periodicals panel include papers on the following topics:

  • Woolf’s contributions to periodicals as an essayist, short story writer, or reviewer
  • Woolf’s interventions in contemporary debates about journalism and the public sphere
  • reviews of Woolf and her circle as evidence of “reception.”

“In any case,” Colliers writes, “papers should engage with periodicals as texts in themselves that bring their own problematics of interpretation and methodology, not primarily as “contexts” or neutral containers of content.”

Send 250-word abstracts and brief bios to Patrick Collier at pccollier@bsu.edu by Jan. 5, 2008.
