“Helen M. Wussow’s scrupulous transcription of the manuscript versions of Mrs. Dalloway will unquestionably enhance our understanding of this modernist novel. Wussow brings out temporal and spatial dimensions not just of the finished novel that The Hours became but also of Virginia Woolf’s creative processes. The transcription shows just how illuminating modern manuscripts can be.”

2000 Conference: Out of Bounds
Selected Papers from the Tenth Annual Conference on Virginia Woolf
As the inaugural conference of the millennium, Virginia Woolf Out of Bounds sought to address the future of Woolf study, especially as an opportunity for new intellectual exchanges and mixtures, and for the expansion of Woolf studies towards new writing, new media, and new academic concerns. The conference invited scholars, students and independent readers to think about Virginia Woolf as she pushes us to cross regional, temporal, and disciplinary boundaries of all kinds. Conference sessions brought Woolf into contact with such contemporary writers as Martin Amis, Michael Cunningham, Alice Munro, Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni and A.S. Byatt. Several papers focus on using A Room of One’s Own in the classroom. Among the forty contributors to this volume are Michèle Barrett, Laura Doyle, Diane F. Gillespie, Maggie Humm, Jane Lilienfeld, Nicola Luckhurst, Patricia Moran, Brenda R. Silver, Jennifer Wicke, and Mark Wollaeger.

1999 Conference: Turning the Centuries
Selected Papers from the Ninth Annual Conference on Virginia Woolf
At the end of the twentieth century, the questions raised and issues explored in Woolf studies prove to be sufficient themes of inquiry for a new century. Can there exist common ground between queer theorists and lesbian-feminists, or are their causes not connected and must they go their separate ways? Virginia Woolf belongs simultaneously to her time and to ours: What allusions would her contemporaries have taken for granted that must now be recovered through meticulous scholarship? What codes whose meanings are apparent to readers now would have been available to very few in her own time? What was popular film culture like and what connections might we find between Woolf’s art and British film of the 1920s? How can Woolf help us think through the dangers of nationalism? What does Three Guineas contribute to a discussion of corporate globalism? And how does it illuminate what has happened for women in the academy and in the professions in the sixty years since it was published? Contributors to Virginia Woolf: Turning The Centuries who pose and suggest answers to these and many other questions include Julia Briggs, Suzette Henke, Sally Greene, Alison Booth, Pamela Caughie, Judith Roof, Diane Gillespie, Melba Cuddy-Keane, and Jane Lilienfeld.

1998 Conference: Virginia Woolf and Communities
Selected Papers from the Eighth Annual Conference on Virginia Woolf
Virginia Woolf and Communities offers new insights on traditional Woolfian communities (such as Bloomsbury) as well as innovative alternative communities of writers, readers and artists. Among the keynote speakers are Tuzyline Allan, Rachel Bowlby, Marianne DeKoven and Vara Neverow. Featured highlights in this volume reproduce special conversations among artists on their communion with Woolf: discussion and critique of the film Paris Was A Woman, and the conversations that take place while reading and teaching Woolf. New voices address Woolf and technology, Woolf read through the lens of trauma theory, the impact of Woolf’s work on Spanish-American women writers, and the letters Woolf received in response to Three Guineas. This volume continues the tradition of vibrant new creative work and scholarship on Woolf by artists, common readers, students and scholars from around the world.
