DH Lawrence at The University of Nottingham
The School of English at the University of Nottingham has led the way in Lawrence research; it has been home to several celebrated Lawrence scholars, including Vivian de Sola Pinto, James T. Boulton, Peter Preston and John Worthen (who remains Emeritus Professor of DH Lawrence Studies).
The University’s Department of Manuscripts and Special Collections on the King's Meadow Campus houses an outstanding collection of Lawrence manuscripts, first editions, letters and research materials; it has been awarded Designated Status by The Museums, Libraries and Archives Council as being of outstanding national and international importance.
The DH Lawrence Research Centre is part of the University of Nottingham's Centre for Regional Literature and Culture. The Centre is fortunate in being able to draw on the expertise of John Worthen, Emeritus Professor of DH Lawrence Studies at the University. Neil Roberts and Keith Sagar are Honorary Professors in the School of English who are attached to the Centre, and Stephen Lowe (a renowned playwright and Honorary Lecturer in the School) works with the Centre on Lawrence-related projects. Dr. Hilary Hillier has specific expertise on Lawrence, and is a valued adviser to the Centre.
Through the annual Journal of D.H. Lawrence Studies, which is edited in-house, the Centre also has firm links to the D.H. Lawrence Society in Eastwood and to the worldwide community of Lawrence scholars and enthusiasts.
We hope that will site will enrich your enjoyment of the author and the places from which he drew so much inspiration.
