‘[A]n affecting homage to, and a high-spirited literary dissection of, Woolf’s book [The Waves] …’ (Catherine Taylor, Financial Times)
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.”
Les articles faisant suite au colloque SEW « Becoming Photographic », organisé par Adèle Cassigneul en collaboration avec Christine Reynier, sont disponibles dans le nouveau numéro Ebc.
The essays in the present volume seek to explore new perspectives on Woolf’s work: thinking Woolf through other languages (French, Italian, Spanish) and other media (music, early photography, cartoon-strip) they address questions of translational ethics, the intra-scriptural, the trans-medial, the transference, transmission, transfixation and transgression.
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.
Marking 100 years since the end of the First World War and 80 years since the publication of Three Guineas, the 28th Annual International Conference on Virginia Woolf invites papers addressing the dual theme of Europe and Peace.
Virginia Woolf: Ambivalent Activist demonstrates the degree to which Woolf was sensitive to the internal politics and conflicts of the bodies she was associated with and the ways in which she interrogated her ambivalent attitudes towards her activism throughout her literary career.
