Hi everyone,
I know there is a fabulous one-week Virginia Woolf in Cambridge summer course scheduled for July, but I am writing to let you know that I hope to be teaching a three-week intensive on Woolf in London May 23-June 10. This seminar is sponsored by my home university (the University of Colorado at Boulder) but is open to both graduate and undergraduate students from other universities.

Below is a blurb on the class, which will include guest lectures by Anna Snaith and Alison Light. I need to recruit 10-12 students in order to go, so any help in spreading the word would be greatly appreciated?thank you. Interested students can just contact me directly for details, but I will also attach an image and here is a link to the study abroad website:  https://studyabroad.colorado.edu/index.cfm?FuseAction=Programs.ViewProgram&Program_ID=1073. (The course costs are still being finalized.)

Thanks and Happy New Year to all!

Literary London: Virginia Woolf on Site (May 23-June 10, 2016)

This seminar on the work and life of Virginia Woolf uses the city of London to deepen and make concrete an understanding of this extraordinary author's body of work. You will have access to all of the most important literary sites related to Woolf's life and you will be able to see up close the enormous impact of London and its environs on Woolf's work. The seminar will examine the ways that the city of London and its adjacent countryside come together in Woolf's complex vision of the English nation, its elaborate class hierarchy, and its storied history. Woolf herself believed that London was "the center of life itself," and this seminar seeks to illustrate how integral this belief is to an understanding of her literary geography. In addition to in class discussions, there will be walking tours to key London locations as well as excursions to Monk?s House, Charleston Farmhouse, Knole and Sissinghurst. Students will also participate in a hands-on art project in the studio of Cressida Bell, the great-niece of Virginia Woolf who specializes in textile and interior design.
