Online portal will connect D.H. Lawrence fans around the world

Online portal will connect D.H. Lawrence fans around the world

31/03/20 - A new online project is connecting Nottinghamshire’s literary greats with fans across the globe.

The Earth Museum, a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to building a global learning resource, is launching a new partnership with the D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum. Lawrence fans will now be able to use a free portal supplied by The Earth Museum to find out more about the objects he owned and places he travelled. Through this portal, The Earth Museum will also share stories about D.H. Lawrence from its own unique archive.

“We are delighted to be working in partnership with the D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum,” said Dr. Janet Owen, Executive Director at The Earth Museum. “This is a resource that enables people to explore the global stories of this world-renowned author through the surviving objects and artefacts that connect with his life.  We will be adding this content to The Earth Museum website too, so anyone might come across this wonderful museum and its collections online, wherever they are in the world.”

The Earth Museum is currently working on similar pilot projects with other museums, and would like to hear from anyone interested in working with them on this new initiative. Take a free tour of The Earth Museum at www.theearthmuseum.co.uk(Opens in a New Window)

The D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum will continue its closure, following guidance from the government, to halt the spread of coronavirus.  We look forward to welcoming visitors back to the museum as soon as we are safely able to do so.

 In the meantime, we are exploring ways for visitors to engage with the heritage of D.H. Lawrence in a digital space.  As well as our new online platform, the Earth Museum, we will be offering a series of creative resources during our closure.
