On Miracle Ground XXI 2020

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 2020: “On 
Miracle Ground XXI.”

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 2020 
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 (preferably matching European and US Summer breaks);
2)  Transportation to and from the proposed site, as well as locally;
3)  Description of possible meeting sites—their location and suitability;
4) Possible excursions
5)  Possibilities for sponsorship by institutions or organizations;
6)  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 Past 
President, by email attachment at lrashidi at mansfield.edu  as soon as 
possible or by 1 December 2018.   (Formal proposals will be due by 30 
January 2019.)
