This site was created as part of an international conference on Doris Lessing’s life and work, held at Plymouth University on 12/13th September 2014.

Following a tremendously rich and enjoyable two days, Edinburgh University Press will be publishing a book that draws on work initiated during the conference – Doris Lessing and the Forming of History – co-edited by the conference organizers (Kevin Brazil, David Sergeant, Tom Sperlinger). Check back here for more details as the book progresses …

This site will continue to exist as a Doris Lessing resource: see the blog for a cornucopia of Lessing related delights!
