TLRH | Novel Revolutions: D.H. Lawrence’s Ireland

TLRH | Novel Revolutions: D.H. Lawrence’s Ireland

Tuesday, 21 September 2021, 4 – 5pm

A seminar by Professor Eve Patten, Trinity College Dublin, as part of the School of English Staff Postgrad Seminar Series in association with Trinity Long Room Hub.

In 1919 D.H. Lawrence wrote of Ireland as ‘a blank round O on the map – a sort of nowhere’, yet Irish references permeate his later novels, often in relation to his fears of an English revolution. This talk traces his Irish connections and considers them in the broader context of English-Irish literary relations after the First World War.

Professor Eve Patten lectures in the School of English, TCD, and is Director of the Trinity Long Room Hub Arts and Humanities Research Institute. Her most recent publication is, as editor, Irish Literature in Transition, 1940-1980 (Cambridge UP, 2020), and her talk is from Ireland, Revolution, and the English Modernist Imagination, forthcoming from Oxford UP.

The Staff-Postgraduate Seminar Series is a fortnightly meeting which has been integral to the School of English research community since the 1990s. The aim of the seminar series is to provide a relaxed and convivial atmosphere for staff and students to present their research to their peers. The series also welcomes distinguished guest lecturers from the academic community outside Trinity College to present on their work. It is a fantastic opportunity to share ideas and engage with the diverse research taking place within the School. The series conveners for the academic year 2020-21 are current PhD students Claire Poynton-Smith, Eric Swartz and Orla Donnelly.
