2009 Woolf and the City Preview


picture-3On the heels of BEA comes the 2009 Woolf and the City conference, an event of modern proportion, which will be bringing fans of Virginia Woolf to the campus of Fordham University in New York from June 4-7. Keeping things ahead of the times, as Woolf would have wanted it, there will be Plenary Talks such as “Woolf’s Creative Violence,” “Cosmopolitan Woolf,” and “Stalking the Cyber-Woolf in a Digital Age.”  Special events include an evening with Princeton and the Stephen Pelton Dance Company, with an after party at the Hudson Hotel. Visit the site for a brief or full conference schedule and keep an eye out on The Rumpus for an upcoming review of the conference plus a Rumpus Interview with Cecil Woolf, the nephew of Leonard Woolf.
