Registration for the 2014 International Conference on Virginia Woolf, June 5-8 in Chicago, is open, and if you are presenting a paper at the conference, you should register by April 15 in order to be included in the printed24th annual conference poster program.

There are special events on June 4 and June 5 that you also may want to consider as you make your travel plans. These include:

  • Poetry Off the Shelf: A Woolf-Inspired Reading by Sina Queyras on Wednesday, June 4, at 7 p.m at the Poetry Foundation.
  • Newberry Library Bloomsbury Exhibit on Wednesday, June 4, 3-4:30 p.m. and Thursday, June 5, 10-11:30 a.m.

Another special feature of the conference are seminars led by noted Woolf scholars ranging from Woolf and Cognition’s Outward Turn with Melba Cuddy-Keane to Queering/Cripping Modernism with Madelyn Detloff. Be sure to read about these sessions before you register, as you will be asked to choose your first, second and third choices during the registration process.

The conference also offers special discounted registration rate for students, part-time and emeritus faculty, and independent scholars. The Woolf Conference is completely self-supporting through the registration fees, so attendees are asked to take this special registration rate only if you qualify for it.
