ABSTRACT: University of New Mexico plans two-week festival on "The Relevance of D.H. Lawrence" in Taos, New Mexico. NEH to support panels, informal discussions, lectures and other activities which focus on Lawrence's relevance as a social critic and creator of a new "life style," his reaction to his time in Taos and his influence on later writers.

Audio tape recording and color film of highlights of festival will be made and evaluated for further editing for use as educational tools.
