Women Writing World War I: Centenary Reflections

updated: 
Monday, December 16, 2013 - 5:04pm
Christa Zeller Thomas / University of Ottawa

Literature about WWI is often associated primarily with men, especially with those who had first-hand experience of the war -- Ernest Hemingway, Erich Maria Remarque, Rupert Graves. War novels, great or otherwise, are usually defined as stories of battle, and war poetry similarly is thought of as written by soldiers -- Wilfrid Owen, Siegfried Sassoon, John McCrae (whose "In Flanders Fields" is perhaps the best-known war poem of all). That the Great War was not exclusively a manly undertaking, however, is evidenced by the participation of women in the war effort, both behind the lines as nurses, volunteers, and ambulance drivers and on the home front as administrative clerks and munitions workers.

I welcome abstracts for a panel on Virginia Woolf and religion, which I intend to propose for the 24th annual Conference on Virginia Woolf to be held 5-8 June 2014 in Chicago (http://www.niu.edu/woolfwritingtheworld/call_for_papers/index.shtml). I'm especially interested in papers on Woolf and religion that integrate the conference's theme of "Writing the World." Papers on Woolf's influence on the "worlds" of later religiously-engaged texts are also welcome.
