    "A Room of One's Own"- Lecture Series

    Thursday, January 29, 4:30 pm - Rose Parlor

    The Spring 2015 “Room of One’s Own” lecture series takes its cue from Virginia Woolf’s essay by the same title, which was first given at Cambridge University in 1929. Like Woolf, invited faculty speakers will tell their own stories, share insights about their writing processes, and reflect broadly on questions related to intellectual freedom for women. The series is an opportunity for us all to think about the degree to which Woolf’s concerns still apply today. Specifically, some speakers will address topics like, how to find time to write when you are a caregiver to small children; how to make room in your brain for writing when you are juggling other jobs; and how to find that ideal writing space, the door to which only you hold the key.

    The speakers will share their own perspectives, followed by a questions and discussion from the audience, and then a workshop for participants in the audience. The series is open to faculty, staff, and students alike and is designed to serve as a venue for both students and their teachers to share stories about common struggles and common points of inspiration. Students enrolled in a writing course this semester are especially encouraged to attend.

    Thursday, January 29th, 4:30-5:45 p.m., Rose Parlor
