Free Insight Seminar Lecture to Focus on Virginia Woolf

On Monday, April 1, Paul Peppis, professor of English at the UO, will offer a free lecture entitled "Modernizing Fiction, Writing Minds: The Case of Virginia Woolf. The lecture runs from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the Knight Library's Browsing Room.

Professor Peppis will approach the topic of modern fiction by looking at Woolf's important essay "Modern Fiction" and her early experimental short story "The Mark on the Wall." The talk seeks to illuminate her efforts to define a new model for fiction in the essay and to realize that model in the short story.

The free lecture introduces topics that Professor Peppis will explore during his four-part Insight Seminar on modernist fiction, with sessions on April 6, 13, 20, and 27. You can register for this seminar at
UO Insight Seminars, a program offered by the UO Libraries, were established in 2003 to provide an opportunity for the general public to re-engage with the liberal arts and experience the intellectual fulfillment that is the hallmark of a university education. They are led by UO faculty who are expert in the topics, who provide formal study guides and lead college-level discussion of the materials for ten hours of class time.
