Virtual Graduate Student Conference on D.H. Lawrence

Categories: American, British, African-American, Colonial, Revolution & Early National, Transcendentalists, 1865-1914, 20th & 21st Century, Medieval, Early Modern & Renaissance, Long 18th Century, Romantics, Victorian, 20th & 21st Century
Event Date: 2020-04-18 Abstract Due: 2020-02-25

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 the theme of the upcoming international D.H. Lawrence conference, to be held in Taos, New Mexico in July 2020: "Lawrence's 1920s: North America and the 'Spirit of Place.'" 

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). 

Please send an abstract of 200-300 words and a concise c.v. to Adam Parkes, Professor of English at the University of Georgia, at aparkes@uga.edu by 15 February 2020.  Acceptance notices will be sent by 29 February.
