============================== CALL FOR PAPERS=============================

16th Annual Conference on Virginia Woolf
Call for Panel Submissions: "Clothing as Boundary"

We are accepting proposals to complete a panel on Virginia Woolf and
clothing currently titled "Clothing as Boundary in the Works of Virginia
Woolf." Of special interest to us is how clothing thematizes
limits/boundaries or examines the intersection of clothing/boundary in
terms of barriers and limits both IN and OF Woolf's work.

CFP: Modernism and Theory (3/1/06; collection)

Monday, November 21, 2005 - 9:34pm
Stephen Ross

"In Theory Lies Modernism"

This volume asks about -- and offers multiple
perspectives on -- the relationship between modernism and theory.
As the most recent modernist studies association
conference (November 3-6, 2005) made abundantly
clear, the last decade's tendency to expand the
temporal, geographical, and material boundaries
of modernism continues unabated. Yet, in a
twofold irony, this renewed vitality of modernist
studies has come at the expense of a key area of
inquiry that is both intimately linked to
modernism and largely responsible for the
rejuvenation of modernist studies: critical theory.
