The Modernist Studies Association 2014 Conference: Confluence & Division, Nov. 6-9, at the Omni William Screen Shot 2014-03-25 at 12.46.13 PMPenn Hotel in Pittsburgh has issued a call for papers that examine women writers in the 1930s: their relationship with modernism as well as the impact of increased political power and continued social inequality. Papers examining race, class, and/or sexuality in a transatlantic context are encouraged.
Erica Delsandro, who is coordinating the paper submissions, shared the news with the VWoolf Listserv: “This is not a call for papers on Woolf’s 1930s work, per se, but since so many Woolfians explore other female writers of the period, I thought I would be remiss not to post this on the Woolf listserv.”
Abstracts of 250-500 words are being accepted until April 1. Email them to Lauren Rosenblum at lauren.rosenblum@gmail.com and Erica Delsandro at ericadelsandro@gmail.com.
