CCILC

Co-ordinating Committee for International Lawrence Conferences (CCILC)

alt  alt  alt

The CCILC, established in June 1993 in Ottawa, Canada, at the 5th International D.H. Lawrence Conference, is the international body charged with authorizing international Lawrence conferences every 2-4 years. As constituted in 1993, with John Worthen as the first chair (President), its role was "to ensure the orderly and continuous planning of international conferences on the work of D.H. Lawrence." These conferences were "to nurture the ongoing international conversation about Lawrence's work" and to occur if possible "in places Lawrence himself lived and worked." CCILC members were to represent their constituencies and disseminate information about upcoming conferences. CCILC convenes at each international DHL conference to review conference proposals and to authorize a proposal for the next conference.

No record exists of a formal CCILC constitution ever being written, revised, or ratified. The CCILC was formally re-constituted before the 12th International D.H. Lawrence Conference in Sydney, at which it authorized a proposal for the 13th International DHL Conference in summer 2014; at that 13th conference in Gargnano, CCILC subsequently reviewed and authorized a proposal for the 14th International DHL Conference, to take place in London during the summer of 2017. CCILC reviewed and authorized in London the proposal for a 2020 Conference to be held in New Mexico. Those listed below have agreed to serve on CCILC 2017-2020, until at least the conclusion of the 2020 conference. In May 2015, both CCILC and the DHLSNA agreed to become formally affiliated organizations, with the DHLSNA handling a Conference Reserve on behalf of CCILC.

The membership of CCILC (representing 37 countries in 2017-2020)  is as follows:

(1) Ex-officio:representatives of duly constituted Lawrence societies (at present, UK, Japan, Korea, North America, Australia), of the DHL Centre at Nottingham University, and of any DHL societies that might be established in future; a representative editor of each Lawrence journal—including to date the Journal of D. H. Lawrence Studies(UK), the D. H. Lawrence Review (North America), Études Lawrenciennes(France), Japan D. H. Lawrence Studies (Japan) and D. H. Lawrence Studies (Korea); executive directors of recent past and immediately forthcoming international D. H. Lawrence conferences authorized by CCILC;

(2) One representative each (elected or appointed by the Chair) from countries not covered by (1).
