PROJECT PROGRESS: 50 Years of Progress and Struggle: Where Do We Go From Here?
Why have modern scholars so persistently analyzed Virginia Woolf’s mental distress as virtually unique – the affliction of a genius set apart from other men and women of the Victorian and Edwardian Age? Suzette Henke, Professor of English and Thruston Morton Chair of Literary Studies, will examine case histories and consider analogies between Woolf’s reported symptoms and those observed in patients admitted to institutional confinements at the turn of the last century.
