Dear colleagues, friends, and Wharton lovers,
I have just returned from a scouting visit to Scuola Lorenzo di Medici, Marist College’s campus in Florence, and I can tell you that they are rolling out the red carpet for Edith Wharton in Florence 2012. A brief update on our progress: We are extending the registration deadline until December 15, and are in the process of putting a PayPal site together for those who wish to pay in that manner. If your paper was accepted, you will receive a welcome email from us soon with more detailed registration information. If you did not submit a paper but are interested in attending, please contact the conference organizers, Meredith Goldsmith (email@example.com) and Emily Orlando (firstname.lastname@example.org) and ask to be put on the list.
We also still check the email@example.com, should you need to get in touch with us that way.
A final note: we received well over 100 proposals and were forced to turn away some that came in just a day or two after the deadline. For this reason, we are unable to entertain any more proposals at this time.
Questions? Please feel free to let us know.
Ciao, and best regards,
Meredith & Emily, EWinFlorence 2012
