Virginia Woolf Miscellany | Racialized and gendered flights through history: Woolf’s Orlando and Alexie’s Flight
Sprouse, M.L. (2018, April) “Racialized and gendered flights through history: Woolf’s Orlando and Alexie’s Flight.” Virginia Woolf Miscellany. https://virginiawoolfmiscellany.files.wordpress.com/2018/04/vwm92fall2017winter20181.pdf

This article extends scholarship considering the ways in which Orlando challenges a fixed relationship between sex and gender, exploring how these identities intersect with race. In reading Orlando and Flight together, I argue the interwoven sex and race open space for unfixed identities within the novels’ social and historical contexts.
