Professor Angela Smith (Stirling), ‘“They couldn’t see the forest for looking at the trees”: Emily Carr’s colonial modernism’

Elliott Morsia (Royal Holloway), ‘D. H. Lawrence and visionary awareness: “not so much because of his achievement as because of his struggle”’

Angela Smith is an emeritus professor in English Studies, and was a founding member and Director of the Centre of Commonwealth Studies, at the University of Stirling in Scotland. Her books include East African Writing in English (Macmillan 1989), Katherine Mansfield and Virginia Woolf: A Public of Two (Clarendon 1999), and Katherine Mansfield: A Literary Life (Palgrave 2000). She edited Jean Rhys’s Wide Sargasso Sea for Penguin (1997), and Katherine Mansfield Selected Stories for Oxford World’s Classics (2002). With Gerri Kimber she edited The Poetry and Critical Writings of Katherine Mansfield, volume 3 of the Edinburgh Edition of the Collected Works of Katherine Mansfield, published in 2014.

Elliott Morsia is a PhD student at Royal Holloway. His thesis on ‘D. H. Lawrence & Genetic Criticism’ is focused on the manuscripts and rough drafts of Lawrence and considers Lawrence’s writing processes in the context of modernism and the more archetypal compositional styles of other contemporary authors.
