A unique insight into D.H. Lawrence exhibition through the eyes of its curator

09/03/23 - Visitors to the D.H Lawrence Birthplace Museum can delve even deeper into the Eastwood born writer’s journey into print with a unique insight from Dr Andrew Harrison, as part of a Meet The Curator session this month.

Dr Harrison, who curated the ‘Editing D.H. Lawrence’ exhibition which is currently on display in the museum, will be on hand between 11.00am and 2.00pm on Saturday 18 March to give his insight into Lawrence and the challenges of censorship, negotiations with publishers, editorial changes and private publication and design.

"I look forward to talking further about some of the themes of the exhibition, focusing on the editing of Lawrence's work during his lifetime and posthumously, his experience of censorship, and his use of private publication to get his more outspoken writing into print, "said Dr Harrison.

“Andrew has been a big supporter of the museum over the years and loves to come and chat to our visitors. He’s very approachable and easy to listen to,” added Carolyn Melbourne, Museum and Collections Officer at the Birthplace Museum.

Dr Harrison is an acclaimed Lawrence expert, currently Director of the D.H. Lawrence Research Centre at the University of Nottingham, as well as a Lawrence biographer and founding editor of the Journal of D.H. Lawrence Studies.

If you have been considering visiting the museum, then this is the perfect time, with admission to the museum completely free on the day of the event.

The exhibition, ‘Editing D.H. Lawrence’ is open in the Gallery Space at the D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum until 27 May 2023.
