Monday, 16 September 2019: Virginia Woolf at Morley College

Virginia Woolf (née Stephen) at Morley College

Monday 16 September, 6:45 at Durning Library

At Morley College between 1905 and 1907 young Virginia Stephen (later Woolf) taught history, art history, English and poetry. Clara Jones of King’s College London introduces Stephen’s only record of it: an unpublished ‘Morley sketch’ which rehearses ideas and anxieties about gender, class and professionalism – themes that in 1915 would be central to her first novel The Voyage Out.

Part of Lambeth Heritage Festival.

6.45 for 7.15pm at the Durning Library. Light refreshments. Everyone is welcome. There is no admission charge, but a £2 donation towards costs is invited.

Please note, there is no talk in August!
