CFP: Clothing as Boundary in the Works of Virginia Woolf (UK) (12/10/05; 6/22/06-6/25/06)
============================== 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.
We invite papers involving Woolf's own exploration of clothing not only
in terms of symbol and substance (or matter and metaphor), but also
clothing as physical, psychological and ideological boundary between
individuals or groups that can be-or fail to be-negotiated. In keeping
with this year's conference themes, we invite paper proposals that
analyze Woolf's use of "clothing as boundary" in relation to: a) the
present and the past, b) genders and sexualities, c) modernity and
tradition, d) the metropolis and the region, e) nationhood and
patriotism, f) war and colonialism, g) social class and race, h) the
elite and the common, i) urban and rural, j) insiders and outsiders, k)
industrialization and work, l) women and men, or, m) any intersection[s]
of the above.
Please email one copy of a 250 word proposal and a short bio paragraph
to Randi Synnove Koppen [Randi.Koppen_at_eng.uib.no]and Catherine R.
Mintler [cmintler_at_unr.edu] by December 10th. The deadline for panel
proposals to be submitted is January 4th, 2006.
