D.H. Lawrence Review

Published since 1968

       The D.H. Lawrence Review is published bi-annually as an international forum for criticism, scholarship, review, and bibliography related to the work of the British writer D.H. Lawrence and his circle.


      The DHLR publishes scholarly work by both younger critics and established scholars. The essays appearing in the journal explore the many ways in which Lawrence illuminates and challenges his readers.

"We've got to live, no matter how many skies have fallen."


––D.H. Lawrence,
 Lady Chatterley's Lover

*  Volume 43.1/2 is a special 50th Anniversary double issue and has shipped.

*  Beginning in Summer 2018, the D.H. Lawrence Review began a formal affiliation with JSTOR, the digital scholarly library.  The journal continues to publish a print edition.  With the arrangement that the journal has established with JSTOR, there is now a “moving wall” of one year.  The moving wall is the gap between the most recent issue of the journal and the date of the most recent issues available through JSTOR.  Subscribers to JSTOR thus will have access to all back issues of the D.H. Lawrence Review with the exception of a current year’s previous issues.  The entire fifty-year trove of articles from the D.H. Lawrence Review is now available to JSTOR subscribers. Please see the link here: http://www.jstor.org/journal/dhlawrencereview

The journal is also considering establishing a mechanism by which JSTOR can provide access to individual subscribers who do not have institutional access.


*  Ron Granofsky has decided to retire as the journal’s Book Review Editor. Ron has overseen the journal’s book reviews with abundant energy, keen intelligence, and cool-headed gusto. The editor warmly thanks him for his long service and commitment to the journal.

Our new incoming Book Review Editor is Johannes (Joost) Burgers. Joost is Assistant Professor of English and Digital Humanities at Ashoka University in India (although currently he is teaching remotely from Durham, North Carolina). Joost earned his Ph.D. in English Literature from the Graduate Center of the City University of New York (CUNY) after completing a Masters in Literary Studies at Utrecht University and a Bachelors in Liberal Studies at University College Utrecht. His 2008 dissertation was entitled Conspiratorial Modernism: Modernism and Conspiracy Theory in Proust, Joyce, Faulkner, and Musil.  He also works as an Associate Director for the Digital Yoknapatawpha Project, a multi-year, collaborative project funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities. Operational since 2012, DY aims to transform William Faulkner’s Yoknapatawpha fictions into searchable data and then to visualize that data through maps and other digital displays. His research interests include Qualitative Data Visualization, Narrative GIS, Global Modernism, Transnational Modernism, Racial Theories, Sexology, Aesthetics, William Faulkner, and Jewish Studies.


* Announcing a Virtual Graduate Student Conference, 17th April 2021.  Abstracts are welcome on any topic in D.H. Lawrence Studies, including any aspect of the writer’s fiction, poetry, and essays, literary contacts, and place in modernism.  We are especially interested in papers relating to one of the following themes: place and landscape; crisis; disease and recovery.  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.  The 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 email an abstract of 200-300 words plus a concise c.v. to Adam Parkes, Professor of English, University of Georgia, Athens, GA, USA, at aparkes@uga.edu by 12th February 2021. Acceptance notices will be sent by February 26, 2021.

* After years of wonderful service as the journal’s webmaster, Tina Ferris is stepping down. The journal thanks her for her patient, hard work.


Our new webmaster, Jeff Brackett, is responsible for the journal’s new website design.
