Archive for the ‘29th Annual International Conference on Virginia Woolf’ Category

Stefano Rozzoni

As is customary at Woolf conferences, scholars from all over the world traveled to the 29th Annual International Conference on Virginia Woolf at Mount St. Joseph University in Cincinnati, Ohio, adding a global perspective to Woolf studies.

Going global

Blogging Woolf snapped photos of some of these scholars at the June 6-9 event. And we share them here as we introduce an upcoming new series of posts.

The brainchild of Stefano Rizzoni, a doctoral student at the University of Bergamo in Italy, the proposed global series will answer questions like these:

  • What are Woolf conferences like? And how do they enhance a spirit of internationalism and community?
  • How do conferences enrich one’s work, vision and knowledge of Woolf and others?
  • How does one’s native country responds to Virginia Woolf studies?

“An Interdisciplinary Approach to ‘A Room of One’s Own” with Mount St. Joseph University faculty Iris Spoor, Elizabeth Mason, Lisa Wagner Crews, and Kristina Broadbeck. This was just one of a dozen morning breakout sessions.

Ellen Mclaughlin, playwright and author of “Septimus and Clarissa,”  presents “Woolf and Empathy, Her Sly Revolutionary Art” as the last plenary of the day, paying a poetic tribute to her own mother and Virginia Woolf and how she came to read, appreciate, and love the author and learn about her mother.

It’s day one of the 29th Annual International Conference on Virginia Woolf, with its theme of social justice, at the University of Mount Saint Joseph in Cincinnati.

Beth Rigel Daugherty, Leslie Hankins and Diane Gillespie presented a panel on “Portraying and Projecting Age, Ageism, and Activism” on day one.

The agenda was full with registration; an opening session; three breakout sessions, each with a choice of six panels ranging from Woolf and race to Queering Woolf; and a plenary session with Dr. Elizabeth Abel of UC Berkeley on “The Smashed Mosaic: Virginia Woolf and African American Modernism.”

The day ended with “Hours in a Library,” a wine and cheese reception at the Mercantile Library in downtown Cincinnati, where conference participants met and mingled among the books.

Take a look at the place where readers, writers, and thinkers have gathered since 1835.
