"No need for pity" says Anna Lillios but the pity is in the fact that the references to writers on WW2 in Crete included Stanley Moss who, as far as I know, had nothing to do with LD, and not Th Stephanides, who did. That's not an oversight.
And if you remove the word "Woman" from the expression "shredded gossip of the American woman journalist" the objection to the phrase ceases to be sexist and becomes nationalistic instead. Hmmm

Durrell's foreword says "It is not the smart, ill-informed writing of the so-called 'trained reporter' nor the shredded gossip of the American woman journalist; it is so bare and unassuming a narrative as to appear in places deliberately underwritten. Yet in the solid virtue of observed detail it evokes the atmosphere of Greece and Crete during the German attack with a fidelity I have not seen elsewhere equalled".Anyone attending this conference would do well to reflect on the fact that, three years ago, Crete was celebrating the centenary of its adhesion to, and inclusion in, the state of Greece.Richard Pine-------------- next part --------------An HTML attachment was scrubbed...URL: ------------------------------Message: 2Date: Wed, 10 Feb 2016 15:23:44 +0000From: "Rashidi, Linda" To: "ilds at lists.uvic.ca" Subject: [ilds] OMG XIX on CreteMessage-ID:	<3FBC96E023D7E54AA76EE3FA0EBB4F2B367FAA03 at ENTXCHMSGP04.PASSHE.LCL>Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"Meta--No, you have not missed anything.

Ian MacNiven will be presenting an opening-day plenary session on Theodore Stephanides. We are pleased that many members of the newly formed Patrick Leigh Fermor Society will be attending the conference, which focuses on both British and Greek WWII resisters and dissident voices, including that of Stephanides.The registration form is completed and will soon be posted online, as Linda Rashidi notes.
