D.H. Lawrence Ranch Initiatives Projects

The D.H. Lawrence Ranch Initiatives embrace collaboration inside and outside of the University of New Mexico. The continued interest in D.H. Lawrence is a driving force in exploring and expanding the opportunities for studying the man, his writing, his environment, and his impact.

In partnership with the University of New Mexico's Physical Plant Department (PPD), the Initiatives strive to become a platform to offer the residents of New Mexico, UNM students, faculty and staff, as well as visitors from all over the world access points for engaging in a lively exchange.

The Initiatives hope to secure University and public support for a seed project that was initiated by Professor Kramer Woodard in the School of Architecture and Planning in 2010. Students visited the Ranch first created an assessment of the site and then developed a longterm vision for future opportunities. The proposal can be viewed here.

Underwritten projects include supporting a UNM Museum Studies class dedicated to creating an inventory of the Ranch.

Collections in Context: Taos, MSST 429/529 (Syllabus outline available here.)

A Museum Studies interpretation class is envisioned for Fall 2018.
