Location: 
Georgia, United States
Subject Fields: 
American History / Studies, British History / Studies, Environmental History / Studies, Literature, Modern European History / Studies

Abstracts are welcome on any topic in D.H. Lawrence studies, including any aspect of his fiction, poetry, and essays, literary contacts, and place in modernism.  We are especially interested in papers relating to one of the following themes: place and landscape; crisis; disease and recovery. 

The online conference will use the Zoom meeting platform but will follow the traditional format of in-person meetings.  Each session will be led by a Chair and will feature a respondent, a senior Lawrence scholar who will provide constructive commentary on the papers.  Our aim is to enable as many students as possible to participate without budgetary pressures.  There is no conference fee but DHLSNA membership is required for presenters (student rate: $10 USD).

Although the conference host is located in the U.S, this is an international conference, open to graduate students working anywhere who are interested in Lawrence.   

Please email an abstract of 200-300 words plus concise c.v. to Adam Parkes, Professor of English, University of Georgia, Athens, GA, USA, at aparkes@uga.edu by 12th February 2021.  Acceptance notices will be sent by 26th February.
