Call for Papers: Woolf Studies and Periodical Studies
        For the Seventeenth Annual Conference on Virginia Woolf
(University of Denver, June 19-22, 2008), I am seeking papers for a panel
that looks at ways of bringing the insights and methodologies of recent
work in early twentieth-century periodical studies to bear on the life
and work of Virginia Woolf. Possibilities include papers that examine
Woolf’s contributions to periodicals as an essayist, short story writer,
or reviewer; Woolf’s interventions in contemporary debates about
journalism and the public sphere; reviews of Woolf and her circle as
evidence of “reception.” In any case, though, papers should engage with
periodicals as texts in themselves that bring their own problematics of
interpretation and methodology, not primarily as “contexts” or neutral
containers of content.
            Send 250-word abstracts and brief bios to Patrick Collier at by Jan. 5, 2008.
