Women Walking in the City Workshop 24 November 2019 London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research Inspired by the journey of Virignia Woolf’s Mrs Dalloway and Lauren Elkin’s critical work Flaneuse, this one-day workshop seeks to explore the idiosyncratic journey of various women in the city of London as represented in British fiction.
