The International Virginia Woolf Society has issued two calls for papers to be delivered at the 2012 Modern Language Association Convention in Seattle, Wash.

  • “Institutional Woolf” will address Virginia Woolf’s paradoxical relationship to academic institutions in her fiction, prose and posthumous status in the canon. Please send 250 word abstracts by March 1 to Amanda.golden@emory.edu. This International Virginia Woolf Society panel will appear in the MLA program.
  • “Women of the Woolf: Influence, Affinity, Obscurity” will explore Virginia Woolf’s literary, aesthetic or epistemological influence on early-twentieth-century women writers and artists (defined broadly) now far less known than she. Interdisciplinary and transatlantic/transnational engagements are encouraged. Please note that this panel is sponsored by the IVWS but will need to go through MLA program review to be accepted. Please send 500-word abstracts to Brenda Helt at helt0010@umn.edu by March 15.
