new issue of Doris Lessing Studies

The latest issue of the Society’s academic journal, Doris Lessing Studies, has just been published! The 2015 edition is volume 33.

Equally exciting is the fact that with this issue, the journal is moving to online-only publication. The format of the journal as you know it has not changed, but from now on, rather than being mailed to members, it will be hosted in PDF format on this web site for download. That means here is the place to find the latest scholarship on Doris Lessing! To read this and other recent issues in our online archive, become a member, or contact your library and inquire about institutional access.

Here is the table of contents for volume 33:
