‘Transatlantic Literature in Context’: Lee Jenkins on D. H Lawrence and American studies – Thursday 4 December, Oxford

On behalf of Dr Tara Stubbs, University of Oxford. Open to all.

Dear all,

We really hope you’ll be able to join us this Thursday for the final seminar of the term, to which we’re really excited to have invited Lee Jenkins, Senior Lecturer in English from University College Cork. I’ve seen an early version of her new book, The American Lawrence, and I think it’s going to be a very significant piece of criticism.

The seminar takes place this Thursday, 5.15-6.45pm, Seminar Room B at the English Faculty: please see below for a short abstract.

With best wishes,


This paper makes a case for what Lee M. Jenkins’ forthcoming book of that title calls The American Lawrence. Jenkins discusses the writing, creative and critical, which D.H. Lawrence produced in the United States between 1922 and 1925, arguing that Lawrence is relevant to the globalised paradigms of American Studies today.
