More About Woolf: A New Book and on the Web

A newly published book of 30 selected papers from the 2003 conference on Virginia Woolf, which Smith College hosted, showcases a variety of the college’s scholarly contributions. Published by Clemson University Digital Press, Woolf in the Real World: Selected Papers from the 13th International Conference on Virginia Woolf is edited by Karen Kukil, Smith’s associate curator of rare books. The book includes President Carol T. Christ’s opening lecture “Woolf and Education,” where she provides a history of Smith and asks, “Why didn’t Virginia Woolf go to Smith?”

Provost Susan C. Bourque contributed an essay on her interview at the conference with the late eminent scholar Carolyn Heilbrun—the scholar’s last interview. Karen Kukil’s introduction concerns the Woolf collections at Smith contributed by alumnae.

Also new is an exhibit featuring many of the Woolf manuscripts, letters and Hogarth Press first editions that were on display at Smith during the conference. Jessica Bumpous ’03, a recent graduate of Simmons College’s Graduate School of Library and Information Science, designed the Web version of the exhibit.
