The D.H. Lawrence Society of North America is organizing a virtual conference for graduate students, on Saturday, April 14, 2018.
Abstracts are welcome on any topic in D.H. Lawrence studies, including any aspect of his poetry, prose, essays, his circle, modernism, and WWI. We especially welcome papers on Lawrence and the 1920s or Lawrence and New Mexico, in anticipation of the next International D.H. Lawrence conference, which will be held in New Mexico in 2020.
The online conference will be held using the Zoom meeting platform and, although virtual, the conference will follow the format of traditional in-person meetings. Each session will be led by a Chair and will have a respondent, a senior Lawrence scholar who will give constructive comments on the papers. Our aim is to enable as many students as possible to participate without budgetary pressures.
Abstracts should be submitted by December 15, 2017, to Nanette Norris (firstname.lastname@example.org). Acceptances will be sent by January 15, 2018. There is no conference fee but membership is required for presenters (student rate $10 USD).
