Woolf in the Real World: Selected Papers from the Thirteenth International Conference on Virginia Woolf, edited by Karen V. Kukil (Clemson, SC: Clemson University Digital Press, 2005), x, 222 pp. ISBN 0-9771263-2-3
The Thirteenth International Conference on Virginia Woolf was hosted by Smith College, a women's college in Northampton, Massachusetts, in June 2003. Nearly 200 scholars delivered papers exploring the ways Woolf engaged the "real world" of her time and the ways her legacy continues to engage "real world" issues now. The thirty essays published here relect the life, writings, and afterlife of Virginia Woolf. In addition to the remarks of plenary speakers Carol T. Christ, Lyndall Gordon, Carolyn Heilbrun, and Frances Spalding, the selected papers include essays by Michael Barrett, Susan C. Bourque, Julia Briggs, Maggie Humm, Dianne Hunter, Eleanor McNees, Kathryn Simpson, and Elizabeth Gallaher von Klemperer, among other distinguished Woolf scholars.
