Day Conference – Feminist Woolf: New Perspectives on Woolf’s Resistance to Feminism

We are very happy to announce “Feminist Woolf”, a day conference on Woolf’s Resistance to feminism, to be held on September 23rd, 2017, with the support of the French Woolf Society (SEW), the Gendermed network and the LERMA. This event was partly funded by the UFR ALLSH too. We would like to take the opportunity to thank all our partners for their continued support.

We hope many of you will be able to join us at 10 at the Maison de la Recherche (Salle de colloque 1), 29 Avenue Schuman.
