Conrad and Lawrence at Sea


"Conrad and Lawrence at Sea"

The Joseph Conrad Society and D.H. Lawrence Society of North America
invite proposals for a joint session at MLA 2017.

Although Conrad and Lawrence disliked each other’s writing, both spent significant amounts of time at sea. We invite proposals comparing their representations of the sea in short stories, novels, or non-fiction as well as proposals that take “at sea” as a metaphor for uncertainty, artistic transition, the “oceanic,” the sublime, or related topics. Please send 250-word abstracts to Joyce Wexler by March 1.
