Virginia Woolf: Writing the World

David J. Fine

Liverpool University Press

This essay focuses on the academic “fad” of “global citizenship”—and reflects on the author’s experience teaching Virginia Woolf’s Three Guineas to two cohorts of (largely privileged) seniors in Lehigh University’s Global Citizenship Program. The argument first examines the various academic discussions concerning global citizenship education before turning to an analysis of how Three Guineas productively complicates students’ engagement with communities both local and global. The essay then assesses sympathetic attachment and the political benefits of such good feeling. In the end, the paper shifts, with Woolf’s aid, from a cosmopolitan framework rooted in moral sensibility to a decisively political one, asking urgent questions of higher education and its implication in systemic injustice.

Keywords:   Virginia Woolf, Three Guineas, Global citizenship, Higher education, Globalization, Cosmopolitanism
