"To The Lighthouse: The Times Are A-Changing"

updated: 
Thursday, March 20, 2014 - 11:34pm
Eduardo Barreto

This paper concerns itself with the "Time Passes" section in Virginia Woolf's To the Lighthouse. Arguably, the middle section functions as the enlacing center between "The Window" and "The Lighthouse," while recording the passing of time and walking the reader through the passing of time with serenity. In short, the concern of this study is to demonstrate how "Time Passes" completes the meaning of the other two sections, and enriches the novel. (1) Unlike the other two sections, the readerly quality of "Time Passes" creates a type of passive readership that (a) receives a comprehensive view (almost virtual and panoramic) of the narrative, and (b) receives fully formed meaning through which analysis (deconstruction of meaning) is possible.

Special Issue of Shakespeare: Adaptation and Early Modern Culture: Shakespeare and Beyond. Deadline 15 September 2014.

Shakespeare (BSA)

Adaptation and early modern culture have provided a particularly fruitful area of study in recent years. Yet very often such studies have tended to focus primarily on Shakespeare and on film. The purpose of this special issue of Shakespeare, the journal of the British Shakespeare Association, is not only to add to this focus, but to expand it. The title of the issue has been chosen to allow a wide field of exploration for contributors, including as it does both adaptation in early modern culture, and adaptation of early modern culture in later periods.

Motherhood Initiative for Research and Community Involvement

In 1976, Adrienne Rich broke new ground with her text Of Woman Born, in which she challenged scholars to confront their tendency to avoid discussions of motherhood, observing: "We know more about the air we breathe, the seas we travel, than about the nature and meaning of motherhood." Rich's book helped to launch the academic study of mothering in literature, as evidenced by the publication of several key texts: The Lost Tradition: Mothers and Daughters in Literature (1980), Mother Puzzles: Daughters and Mothers in Contemporary American Literature (1989), Women's Fiction Between the Wars: Mothers, Daughters, and Writing (1998), This Giving Birth: Pregnancy and Childbirth in American Women's Writing (2000), and Textual Mothers, Maternal Texts (2010).
