Virginia Woolf and the Making of Modernism. On the eve of the centenary of Modernism's annus mirabilis, 1922, we'll consider Virginia Woolf's contribution to the making of modernism. We'll explore her work as writer, as editor at the Hogarth Press, as journalist, and as celebrity, and her engagement with a rich local and global intellectual scene. Readings will include a selection of Woolf's major novels, short stories and essays. We will also delve into her autobiographical writings, including her letters and diaries.
