Interdisciplinary/Multidisciplinary Woolf comprises thirty-five essays selected from papers delivered at the 22nd Annual International Conference on Virginia Woolf, hosted by the University of Saskatchewan. Contributors link inter- and multidisciplinary scholarship to the intellectual and creative projects of Woolf and her modernist peers. Essays that identify and extend points of contact between literary studies and varied disciplines are arranged in four thematic sections: "History, Materiality, Multiplicity"; "Patterns, Practices, Principles"; "Art, Influence, Embodiment"; and "Publishing, Politics, Publics." This collection contains writing by established and emergent scholars, including Susan Brown, Patricia Clements, and Isobel Grundy (editors of Orlando: Women's Writing in the British Isles, from the Beginnings to the Present); Leslie Kathleen Hankins; Maggie Humm; and Brenda Silver.

Ann R. C. Martin is Assistant Professor at the University of Saskatchewan.

Kathryn Holland is Professor in the English Department at MacEwan University.
