This SAES workshop aims to continue the ongoing rethinking of modernism’s forms, conditions, and “posture[s]” of revolution. By avoiding the essentialisation of rupture and envisioning cultural change, in the wake of Fredric Jameson, “beyond the opposition between synchrony and diachrony,” we propose to pluralise our approaches to revolutionary modernisms, and thus to understand such performances of modernity by building on the radically multiple semantics of the notion per se, such as theorised by Reinhart Koselleck. Koselleck’s insight into revolution as a globally extendable marker of modernity is particularly significant for this purpose: “The word ‘revolution’ possesses such revolutionary power that it is constantly extending itself to include every last element on our globe.”
The 2018 Literature Cambridge programme is now available
Comment sa transposition en œuvre musicale renouvelle notre écoute et notre interprétation d’un texte source ? Dans quels aspects d’un texte littéraire puise-t-on les ressources pour les voix dans l’expérimentation musicale contemporaine ? Cette mini-journée d’études réunira compositeurs, musicologues et littéraires autour de ces questions.
We propose to examine Virginia Woolf’s relationship to history by reflecting on her reading and writing of history, be that the history of her own time, of the past, women’s history or literary history.
A day conference on Woolf’s Resistance to feminism
The first round table of the Italian Virginia Woolf Society.
Fifty years after the call for ‘Women’s Lib’ and nearly seventy years since Simone de Beauvoir famously omitted to mention Woolf in her iconic Le Deuxième Sexe (1949) the time seems ripe to reconsider Woolf’s feminism, in all its contradictoriness, slipperiness, and enduring – but perhaps misleading – relevance.
The 27th Annual International conference on Virginia Woolf will mark the centenary of the founding of the Hogarth Press. The conference aims to celebrate Leonard and Virginia Woolf’s Hogarth Press as a key intervention in modernist and women’s writing and to mark its importance to independent publishing and bookselling.
Un festival littéraire et un faire-part de naissance !
5 days’ intensive study of Virginia Woolf’s work.
Counter to the conventional perception of modernism as ahistorical, there have been recent academic and critical efforts to historicize it. The Historical Modernism Symposium seeks to contribute to this trend.
A new series of talks for town and gown on Virginia Woolf and her contemporaries.
This conference will explore those borders that modernism has either dissolved or provocatively recovered in light of an interdisciplinary, cross-cultural and trans-geographical approach.
