Call for Papers
Saturday, April 18, 2020

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 CV to Adam Parkes, Professor of English at the University of Georgia, at

Deadline for submissions: February 15, 2020
