Reconsiders Virginia Woolf's work for the 21st century focusing on coevolution, duality and contradiction. These eleven newly commissioned essays represent the evolution, or coevolution, of Woolf studies in the early twenty-first century. Divided into five parts. Self and Identity; Language and Translation; Culture and Commodification; Human, Animal and Nonhuman; and Genders, Sexualities and Multiplicities, the essays represent the most recent scholarship on the subjective, provisional, and contingent nature of Woolf's work. The expert contributors consider unstable constructions of self and identity, and language and translation from multiple angles, including shifting textualities, culture and the marketplace, critical animal studies, and discourses that fracture and revise gender and sexuality.Key Features: - Extends existing critical work that considers a multiplicity of constructions of Virginia Woolf- Demonstrates original and diverse ways of reading this canonical (and contradictory) author- Explores multiple meanings related to the conjoined, fused, connected and evolving nature of Woolf studies- Considers new configurations, new pairings, and new ways of placing ideas in tension around Woolf's work for a postmodern, postmillennial eraEditor bio: Jeanne Dubino is Professor of English and Global Studies, Department of Cultural, Gender, and Global Studies, Appalachian State University, Boone.
