The DH Lawrence Research Centre

The Centre was founded in 1991 with the aim of celebrating the work of Lawrence and promoting understanding of his life and legacy both within and outside academia.

Today it organises academic conferences, exhibitions and public events relating to Lawrence within the University of Nottingham, while also working alongside DH Lawrence Heritage in Eastwood to showcase his importance for the local area through permanent and temporary exhibitions in the birthplace museum and D.H. Lawrence Heritage Centre, and through the organisation of the annual D.H. Lawrence Festival of Culture.

The Centre aims to celebrate the work of Lawrence and promote understanding of his life and legacy both within and outside academia.

Journal of DH Lawrence Studies

The Centre also edits the Journal of D.H. Lawrence Studies on behalf of the D.H. Lawrence Society of Great Britain.


Open educational resources are available, including those from the University of Nottingham Manuscripts and Special Collections, and other related links to D.H. Lawrence study materials.
