Virginia Woolf and Politics

3 Guineas cover.jpg

To mark the centenary of the 1918 Armistice, our 2018 summer course will think about how Woolf's writings address the politics of her day. We will explore her thinking about the First World War and the Armistice, alongside The Years (1937) and Three Guineas (1938), Woolf's responses to the political issues of the 1930s. We hope to study various political contexts for her writings, such as the Labour Party, Leonard Woolf's political work, the suffrage movement, the pacifist movement.

Confirmed teachers so far include Alison Hennegan, Frances Spalding (on Woolf and the Spanish Civil War) and Trudi Tate.

Provisional dates: 2-6 July 2018.
