The Bloomsbury Group was a societal phenomenon in Great Britain at the close of the Edwardian Age. Members Virginia Woolf, John Maynard Keynes, E.M. Forster, and Lytton Strachey professed radical views and lived lives that were considered scandalous in the early 1900s. Collectively, they deeply influenced literature, aesthetics, criticism, and economics as well as modern attitudes towards feminism, pacifism, and sexuality.
Vision and Design: A Year of Bloomsbury, a series of programs has been organized at Duke to celebrate how Bloomsbury challenged conventional wisdom through active and ongoing conversation -- in their art, their writings, their activism as well as in one-on-one repartee in each others' living rooms. While showcasing an important exhibition of Bloomsbury art, this yearlong programming is an extraordinary model of what can be achieved in a university setting.
