Interdisciplinary/Multidisciplinary Woolf comprises thirty-five essays selected from papers delivered at the 22nd Annual International Conference on Virginia Woolf, hosted by the University of Saskatchewan. Contributors link inter- and multidisciplinary scholarship to the intellectual and creative projects of Woolf and her modernist peers. Essays that identify and extend points of contact between literary studies and varied disciplines are arranged in four thematic sections: "History, Materiality, Multiplicity"; "Patterns, Practices, Principles"; "Art, Influence, Embodiment"; and "Publishing, Politics, Publics." This collection contains writing by established and emergent scholars, including Susan Brown, Patricia Clements, and Isobel Grundy (editors of Orlando: Women's Writing in the British Isles, from the Beginnings to the Present); Leslie Kathleen Hankins; Maggie Humm; and Brenda Silver.

Contradictory Woolf is a collection of 37 essays selected from approximately 200 papers presented at the 21st Annual International Conference on Virginia Woolf, hosted by the University of Glasgow (9-12 June 2011). The theme of contradiction in Woolf's writing, including her use of the word "but," is widely explored in relation to auto/biography, art, philosophy, cognitive science, sexuality, animality, class, mathematics, translation, annotation, poetry, and war. Among the essays collected in this volume are the five keynote addresses—by Judith Allen, Suzanne Bellamy, Marina Warner, Patricia Waugh, and Michael Whitworth—as well as a preface by Jane Goldman and an introduction by the editors.

Virginia Woolf and the Natural World is a compilation of thirty-one essays presented at the twentieth annual international conference on Virginia Woolf. This volume explores Woolf's complex engagement with the natural world, an engagement that was as political as it was aesthetic. The diversity of topics within this collection—ecofeminism, the nature of time, the nature of the self, nature and sporting, botany, climate, and landscape, just to name a few—fosters a deeper understanding of the nature of nature in Woolf's works. Contributors include Bonnie Kime Scott, Carrie Rohman, Diana Swanson, Elisa Kay Sparks, Beth Rigel Daugherty, Jane Goldman, and Diane Gillespie, among many others from the international community of Woolf scholars.

Woolf and the City collects important essays selected from the nearly 200 papers delivered at the nineteenth annual international conference on Virginia Woolf. The volume includes an introduction by the editors, the conference keynote addresses, and twenty-five essays organized around six presiding themes: Navigating London; Spatial Perceptions and the Cityscape; Regarding Others; The Literary Public Sphere; Border Crossings and Liminal Landscapes; and Teaching Woolf, Woolf Teaching. It also includes a special session of the conference, a round-table conversation on Woolf's legacy in and out of the academy. Beyond the volume's focus on urban issues, many of the essays address the ethical and political implications of Woolf's work, a move that suggests new insights into Woolf as a "real world" social critic. The contributors, who include Ruth Gruber, Molly Hite, Mark Hussey, Tamar Katz, Eleanor McNees, Kathryn Simpson, and Rishona Zimring, advance Woolf studies and the broader fields of narrative studies, cultural geography, urban theory, phenomenology, and gender studies.

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.
