CALL FOR PAPERS
(please forward)

2006 is the centenary of the birth of John Betjeman, Poet Laureate from
1972-84. To celebrate this event and to highlight the extensive holdings of
Betjeman's correspondence and manuscripts at the University of Victoria
(Canada), two panels on June 29th are dedicated to Betjeman and his milieu
in the "ON MIRACLE GROUND XIV" conference of the International Lawrence
Durrell Society (25-29 June 2006).

Papers that deal with any aspect of Betjeman's career or his engagement with
his contemporaries are welcome, though those with an archival or comparative
approach are particularly appropriate to the conference's general theme.
