Here are the details of the Katherine Mansfield Society's Annual Birthday
Lecture 2018

Saturday 13 October 2pm

Institute of English Studies
Room 243, Senate House, University of London

*Professor Steven Matthews*, University of Reading, will deliver a lecture

*‘Nearer than anyone else’: Katherine Mansfield, D.H. Lawrence, and the
‘modern’ short story*

A word frequently and understandably used to describe, and to praise,
Katherine Mansfield’s writing is ‘modern’. This lecture will discuss what
is implied by ‘modern’ through reflection upon the various conversations
between Mansfield and D.H. Lawrence, conversations which stretched from
their first meeting in 1913 almost to the time of Mansfield’s death.
Mansfield finalised the stories in her two major collections across this
period; Lawrence the stories eventually collected in three volumes. The
lecture will focus on the experiments with short story form and content
which partly emerged from the close interchanges between these different,
but mutually-admiring, writers in difficult times.
Tickets for the event can be purchased from the Institute of English
Studies website

Price: £18 non-members / £15 KMS members, to include wine and nibbles after
the lecture. The link to purchase tickets is available on our website:


Copies of the lecture will be available to purchase on the day for a small
