  Thanks for doing the necessary homework, Bill.  

  Based on the email queries of late on and off list, I think that there was a bit of concern.  Now at least some planning can begin.

        Lawrence Durrell: a Writer at the Crossroads of Arts and Sciences
        Université Paris X-Nanterre, France - 1-5 July 2008
        Deadline for proposals: 30 November 2007

        "The most beautiful experience we can have is the 
        mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that 
        stands at the cradle of true arts and science." 
        (Albert Einstein, "What I believe," 1930).
        The aim of this conference is to explore Lawrence 
        Durrell's universe at the crossroads of arts and 
        science, but also to explore the world of Paris 
        between the wars as the artistic and intellectual 
        magnet that drove so many artists to become expatriates.
        The sessions will focus on the relationships 
        between Durrell's works and the aesthetic context 
        as well as the development of scientific 
        research. Contributions dealing with the Parisian 
        intellectual and artistic crucible, the arts of 
        politics, artistic intertextuality (drama, music, 
        painting, philosophy), the scientific fabric 
        (Durrell's investigations into quantum theory and 
        psychoanalysis) are particularly welcome. But 
        other propositions on wider fields are welcome as well.
        Submissions for papers including a 250-word 
        abstract, a short biography, and possibly a 
        bibliography, as well as any request for specific 
        material (recorder, videoprojector or other) 
        should be sent by 31 November 2007 to Corinne 
        <corinnealexandre-garner at voila.fr>, or Murielle 
        Caplan-Philippe <murielle.philippe at u-paris10.fr>, 
        or Isabelle Keller-Privat <isa.kellerprivat at free.fr>.
