TO ATTEND THE CONFERENCE, YOU NEED IN ADDITION TO JOIN, FOR A YEAR, EITHER THE D.H. LAWRENCE SOCIETY OF EASTWOOD, OR THE D.H. LAWRENCE SOCIETY OF NORTH AMERICA
It is hoped that all those who are sufficiently interested in D.H. Lawrence to attend this Conference will want to remain in some kind of contact with the Lawrence community after the duration of the Conference itself. Both the D.H. Lawrence Society of North America, and the D.H. Lawrence Society of Eastwood, U.K., have supported this Conference most generously – and are always seeking to expand their network of admirers of Lawrence, and the dissemination of scholarship on Lawrence, which they exist to promote.
It has therefore been decided that registration with either one of these societies – at your own choice – will be part of the registration procedure.
A description of each of these societies may be found below.
Of course – you should feel free to join both!
And it is hoped that many of you will choose to remain members of your chosen society/ies well beyond the following year.
If you are already a member of one of these societies, it is simply required that you pay one year’s further subscription now. This membership will begin when your current annual subscription expires.
Payment of the year’s subscription is to be made directly to the society/ies concerned on their websites, as follows:
D.H. Lawrence Society of North America:
D.H. Lawrence Society of Eastwood:
Acknowledgment of Registration to the Conference will be sent to you when:
- the Conference organisers have verified that one or other Society has been joined
- the Conference Fee has been paid
Please indicate here which society (or societies) you are joining:
DHLSNA ($25 or $10, student/unemployed)
Eastwood Society (£18, £16 concessions, £20 international)
(Graduate Fellows are strongly encouraged to join, but are not obliged to)
Information about the D.H. Lawrence Societies
- H. Lawrence Society of North America
The D. H. Lawrence Society of North America (DHLSNA) encourages study of D. H. Lawrence and all his works–poetry, fiction, drama, essays, travel writing, literary criticism, painting, and letters; scholarship on Lawrence; and creative works inspired by Lawrence. It sponsors meetings and conferences dealing with Lawrence, and assists in preservation of buildings associated with him.
It was founded in 1975 at the Modern Language Association (MLA) in San Francisco, with James Cowan serving as its first president. In 1980, the name was changed to D. H. Lawrence Society of North America, although its 150 current members live and work all over the world.
The DHLSNA organizes one or more sessions on D. H. Lawrence at the annual MLA convention each year. It has also sponsored or co-sponsored international Lawrence conferences around the world, including recent conferences in Santa Fe, New Mexico in 2005; Eastwood, England in 2007; Sydney, Australia in 2011; and Gargnano, Italy in 2014. The DHLSNA offers three awards to recognize the achievements of Lawrence scholars at these conferences: the Harry T. Moore Lifetime Achievement Award, the Newly Published Scholar award, and the Mark Spilka lecture. In addition it funds fellowships at international Lawrence conferences it sponsors to support advanced graduate students interested in D. H. Lawrence.
Annual membership in the DHLSNA is $25 ($10 for students/underemployed); the membership year begins Jan. 1 and runs through Dec. 31. The DHLSNA is a non-profit organization, so membership fees are tax-deductible in the U.S. Benefits include the DHLSNA bi-annual Newsletter which is distributed electronically to all of its members, and access to a moderated list-serve which distributes notices about upcoming events, calls for papers, and other information to members. The webpages of the DHLSNA include its officers, current by-laws, annual treasurer’s report, minutes of annual business meetings, a password-protected list of current members, a directory, and memorial page, among other features. It also maintains the D. H. Lawrence Facebook page. For more information, see: http://dhlsna.org.
Membership fees are paid via PayPal; we would be delighted to welcome you as a member of the DHLSNA at http://dhlsna.org/join
The D.H. Lawrence Society
The D. H. Lawrence was established in Eastwood in 1974 to promote the education of the public in the life and works of D.H. Lawrence. The chief function of the Society is to encourage the sharing of the study of D.H. Lawrence through monthly meetings, usually held in Eastwood, and through a range of other activities. The monthly meetings are open meetings and guest speakers are invited to address the group. Usually meetings are followed by a time for questions and discussion. From time to time a meeting may take the form of readings, analysis and discussion from Lawrence’s work.
At present John Worthen is our President, and we are supported by five enthusiastic and well-respected Vice Presidents. Current membership stands at 148 but many of these members live and work all over the world. As a Society we benefit from our close working links with the D.H. Lawrence Centre at Nottingham University and with the Manuscripts and Special Collection Department at the university. The University has a unique collection of Lawrence material, and the Lawrence Society has an extensive library of its own.
The Society is aware that much of the work done around Lawrence topics is of an academic nature but in recent months the Council has taken positive steps to extend the field of contact to schools, colleges and life-long learning groups. Because the Society is based in Eastwood we have a unique opportunity to study buildings and locations linked to Lawrence and to local history. With these opportunities in mind the Council has recently appointed a 6th Form pupil to the Council to foster school links and has set up an education sub group.
In September each year the Society is involved in the D.H. Lawrence Festival of Culture in Eastwood. This venture is organised in conjunction with the local borough council. Part of this festival is the annual D.H. Lawrence Birthday Lecture and a one day D.H. Lawrence/ F.R. Leavis conference run jointly with the Leavis Society.
Members of the Society receive a copy of the Journal which is published and distributed each year in Jan/ Feb and includes papers and reviews submitted in the previous year. All items are published only after scrutiny by the editor and a strong editorial advisory team. At present the Journal is published as hard copy but it is planned that digitised versions of all past and future Journals will be created and made available.
Membership fees are paid by cheque or bank transfer. Membership application details are available here:
and from our Treasurer Sheila Bamford
We would be delighted to have you as a member of the Society.
