Beth Rigel Daugherty

The IVWS is excited to feature Beth Rigel Daugherty for its second IVWS Fall Lecture, which will take place on Monday, October 10th at 1:00pm ET (New York). The title of her lecture is “Learning and Essaying: From Adeline Virginia Stephen to Virginia Woolf.”

To begin her ramble, she will recall for us where her scholarly journey through Woolf’s essays began before sketching out the overall approach, organization, and argument of her recently published Virginia Woolf’s Apprenticeship: Becoming an Essayist (Edinburgh UP, 2022). After reading brief passages from this work—about the King’s College Ladies’ Department; Morley College; her editors; and possibly more—the lecture will end (or, better, stop) with a glance at Beth’s follow-up volume, Virginia Woolf’s Essays: Being a Teacher. This glance will include a snippet on teaching English literature in the first part of the twentieth century. The event will close by inviting the audience in for an open Q&A session.
