Host Institution: University of Nottingham, UK - Conference Location:
Full details and online registration:
The 11th International D.H. Lawrence Conference; 'Return to Eastwood'
invites proposals for 20 minute papers on all aspects of Lawrence's life
and work. Delegates are encouraged to relate their presentations to
topics suggested by the conference theme - 'Return to Eastwood' - but we
are nonetheless eager to present all new work relating to any aspect of
D.H. Lawrence studies: his life, work, influence and significance. We
are also interested in developing a strand specifically concerned with
'Teaching DHL'; papers addressing pedagogic issues are most welcome. As
in previous years, there will be themed, parallel sessions to
incorporate all the paper presentations.
It is anticipated that selected papers from the event will be published
in a conference volume, and/or in the D.H. Lawrence Review and/or the
Journal of D.H. Lawrence Studies.
If you would like to present a paper, you may wish initially to discuss
your presentation with the Conference Director, at
Director_at_dh-lawrence.org. Please send a 250-300 word abstract or
overview. When you register for the conference, you will also be asked
to submit your abstract, if you wish to make a presentation.
The deadline for Paper and Presentation proposals is 31 March, 2007.
Given the delay in circulating the cfp, however, later submissions will
be considered as far as space permits.
The event is in association with the Eastwood D.H. Lawrence Festival
2007. During the weeks before and after the conference there will be
numerous public events, including film screenings, exhibitions and
talks. Delegates will be accommodated at Eastwood Hall, a luxurious Spa
and Conference Centre in Eastwood, and have discounted rates for
extended stays. Enquiries about all aspects of the event are welcome at
From the Literary Calls for Papers Mailing List
