Dear all,

The notice below went out from Paul Lorenz to all active ILDS members, 
so I'm sharing on the listserv as well (nb: by "members" I mean those 
with active membership dues in the Society -- the listserv obvious 
reaches a broader group).

All best,


On Miracle Ground XIX 2016

The Executive Board of the International Lawrence Durrell Society 
requests preliminary proposals from members interested in organizing or 
hosting the conference that the society will sponsor in summer 2016: “On 
Miracle Ground XIX.”

These statements of interest should address reasons why the proposed 
location is particularly suitable for a conference  devoted to Durrell 
and study  of his work—and/or  attractive to and convenient for 
potential attendees.

Additionally, preliminary proposals should identify those who would 
undertake planning and implementing local arrangements for the 2016 
conference and indicate their qualifications, interests, and availability.

The Executive Board will respond to statements of interests as promptly 
as possible and will provide assistance as needed in the preparation of 
formal proposals that, in addition to the information described above, 
will cover also the following points:

1)  Possible dates;

2)  Transportation to and from the proposed site, as well as locally;

3)  Description of possible meeting sites—their location and suitability;

4)  Possibilities for sponsorship by institutions or organizations;

5)  Quality and availability of hotel rooms, restaurants, & other 

Final proposals should include estimates of expenses (a tentative 
budget) and possible sources for funding (grants and donations).

Please send statements of interest to Linda Rashidi, ILDS president, by 
email attachment at lrashidi at mansfield.edu  as soon as possible or by 1 
December 2014.   (Formal proposals will be due by 30 January 2015.)
