While the 21st Annual International Conference on Virginia Woolf: Contradictory Woolf will kick off less than a week, plans for the 22nd Annual International Conference on Virginia Woolf: Interdisciplinary/Multidisciplinary Woolf are ramping up.

Contradictory Woolf will take place June 9-12 in Glasgow, Scotland, and Interdisciplinary/Multidisciplinary Woolf will be held June 7-10 at the University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, Canada.

The 22nd conference website is now live, and the plans already formulated sound pretty exciting.

Plenary speakers include:

The Virginia Woolf Collection

To mark the 20th Annual International Conference on Virginia Woolf, Cynthia Nash has created a collection of specially designed jewelry named in honor of Woolf.

The Virginia Woolf Collection includes tanzanite and garnet Swarovski crystals, with tanzanite representing Woolf’s favorite colored ink and garnet symbolizing friendship, wholeness and success, according to Nash.

The idea for the jewelry collection started with Kristin Czarnecki, organizer of this year’s conference at Georgetown College in Georgetown, Ky, whose theme is “Woolf and the Natural Word.”  She said Nash asked many questions about Woolf and read To the Lighthouse before designing the necklace, bracelet and earrings in Woolf’s honor.

“Cindy’s Virginia Woolf jewelry is a lovely, lasting memento of Woolf’s significance in our lives and the fellowship we enjoy at each year’s conference,” Czarnecki said.

Orders placed by May 10 receive a 10 percent pre-conference discount. To get the discount, use the code vwoolf at checkout. Conference attendees will also save the customary $8 shipping fee, as they can pick up their orders when they arrive at the conference. Pieces from the collection will also be available for sale at the conference.
