Virginia Woolf in Cambridge – Summer course, 18-22 July 2016

Virginia Woolf in Cambridge immerses students for a week in the writing and context of Virginia Woolf. It is the only course in the world to provide lectures, readings, supervisions, and excursions, all focused upon Virginia Woolf and her work. The day starts with a lecture and discussion presented by a leading Woolf scholar. On four days there is a Cambridge-style supervision, given to students in twos or threes, and taught by lecturers and postgraduates from the University of Cambridge.

After our lectures and supervisions, there is time allocated to read and think in the beautiful setting of Homerton college. There are Woolf excursions in Cambridge and London, including visits to Girton and Newnham Colleges, where Woolf gave the lectures which became A Room of One’s Own (1929). In the evenings there will be literary readings and talks by leading novelist Susan Sellers and renowned performance artist Kabe Wilson. And there will be time to read further, explore Cambridge, and to reflect.
