From the VWoolf Listserv comes this call for papers.

Virginia Woolf’s atheism and her sharp criticism of religion are well-established in the critical literature. Yet Woolf’s sometimes withering critique of religion belies what might be termed a spiritual sensibility in her work. An upcoming collection seeks to define the spiritual in expansive and interdisciplinary ways that illuminate Woolf’s writing, as well as spirituality itself.

The call for papers for this collections seeks papers on the following:

  • Approaches drawing on theology, psychology, philosophy, geography, and other disciplinary methods
  • Areas of interest might include Woolf’s treatment of sacred spaces; doctrinal or ritualistic language; the soul; illness and its relationship to spiritual experience; spiritual metaphors; spirituality and the body; re-enchantment; writing as spiritual practice; etc.

Submit abstracts of approximately 500 words by March 1, 2018, to Kristina K. Groover, Professor of English, Appalachian State University, at grooverkk@appstate.edu <mailto:grooverkk@appstate.edu>).

Inquiries are welcome.
