The 26th Annual Conference on Virginia Woolf: Virginia Woolf and Heritage
Leeds Trinity University is honoured to be hosting the 26th Annual Conference on Virginia Woolf: Virginia Woolf and Heritage.
This international conference will investigate how Virginia Woolf engaged with heritage, and how she understood and represented it. One strand will look at her experience of the heritage industry, for example: libraries, museums, art galleries, authors' houses, artists' houses, stately homes, London's heritage sites, and tourist sites in Britain and abroad.
Alternatively, the topic encompasses Woolf's constructions of heritage, including literary heritage, intellectual heritage, family histories, the history of women and the history of lesbians. The conference will also consider ways in which Woolf has been represented and even appropriated by the heritage industry, for example in virtual and physical exhibitions; libraries, archives and collections; plaques, memorials, and statues; and at National Trust or other properties such as Monk's House and Knole.
