Virginia Woolf: Twenty-First-Century Approaches
- Publish Date: 2014-12-01
- Binding: Hardcover
These 11 newly commissioned essays represent the evolution, or coevolution, of Woolf studies in the early 21st-century. Divided into 5 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 re-envision gender and sexuality.
