ESSEX JUNCTION, Vt. (AP) - A lecturer from the University of Vermont is going to be talking about the role of women in the writings of author Virginia Woolf.
Annika Ljung-Baruth will give the talk Jan. 8 at the Brownell Library in Essex Junction.
Entitled, "The Incandescent Mind: Virginia Woolf and Our Literary Foremothers," the talk is part of the Vermont Humanities Council's First Wednesdays lecture series. It is free and open to the public.
Ljung-Baruth will trace the ways Woolf's theoretical stance on women and writing is manifested in works such as "A Room of One's Own," ''To the Lighthouse," and "Mrs. Dalloway."
Ljung-Baruth specializes in 20th-century literature, the representation of women in literature and in the media, and feminist theory and philosophy.
