Coinciding with the bicentennial of Lewis and Clark's Expedition, the wide range of papers presented at this conference emphasized the adventurousness of Woolf's work. Nearly 30 essays were selected for publication that reflect her enterprising nature, with titles such as Cheryl Mares's "The Making of Virginia Woolf's America" and Emily Wittman's "The Decline and Fall of Rachel Vinrace: Reading Gibbon in Virginia Woolf's The Voyage Out." The selected papers explore such topics as Woolf's life; her relationship to nature and to scientific and environmental thinking; her attitudes towards London, America, and the Middle East; and the cultural origins and contexts of her outlook on art and empire.

The nearly 200 papers delivered at the Thirteenth Internation Conference on Virginia Woolf focused on the ways Woolf engaged the "real world" of her time and the ways her legacy continues to engage "real world" issues now. Thirty essays were selected for publication that relect the life, writings, and afterlife of Virginia Woolf. In addition to the remarks of plenary speakers Carol T. Christ, Lyndall Gordon, Carolyn Heilbrun, and Frances Spalding, the selected papers include essays by Michael Barrett, Susan C. Bourque, Julia Briggs, Maggie Humm, Dianne Hunter, Eleanor McNees, Kathryn Simpson, and Elizabeth Gallaher von Klemperer, among other distinguished Woolf scholars.
