CFP: D. H. Lawrence's Circle and Short Stories
(3/25/09; MLA 12/27/09-12/30/09)
The D. H. Lawrence Society of North American (DHLSNA) invites individuals
to submit abstracts for consideration for the 2009 MLA meeting in
Philadelphia (which will be held from December 27th through 30th).
The DHLSNA is organizing two panels: "D. H. Lawrence's Circle" and "D. H.
Lawrence's Short Stories."
We are interested in considering abstracts for the "D. H. Lawrence's Short Stories" panel of a
theoretical, biographical, literary or cultural nature that involve one or more of the short stories.
We also welcome abstracts for the "D. H. Lawrence's Circle" panel. Although not a coterie
because it was not that close-knit, Lawrence's friends constitute some of the most famous or
interesting thinkers and creators of the early-twentieth century. In addition, his relationships
with some of these people were extraordinary, due to his intensity and theirs, and the very high
premium he placed on friendship.
We welcome abstracts of 250 words that address either topic and that demonstrate an innovative
scholarly approach to primary texts while simultaneously addressing important critical
approaches to Lawrence.
Please submit abstracts by March 25th to DHLSNA President Jill Franks at Jill164_at_aol.com.
Individuals whose papers are selected for presentation will need to be members of the MLA by
April 7 in order to qualify for the panel. Signing up and paying only takes a few minutes, at
www.mla.org. In addition, panelists will need to be members of the DHLSNA in order to present
at the conference. To join the DHLSNA, please send annual dues ($25 for full-time faculty and
$10 for graduate students) to the DHLSNA Treasurer, Theresa Thompson, at the following
