The third biennial meeting of the Defoe Society is being generously hosted by the Bloomington-Normal Marriott Hotel & Conference Center in Normal, IL, on the edge of the campus of Illinois State University and in the heart of Uptown Normal. The hotel will offer a special conference rate of approximately $119.00 (US$) a night. The hotel provides complimentary shuttle service to and from the Central Illinois Regional Airport and is also just a block from the Amtrak station. Please see the hotel website at for a list of their amenities and services (and yes, they have a coffee shop).

NOTE: Because we extended the deadline for paper proposals, we are still in the process of getting the final numbers to the hotel. Katherine will email all participants as soon as the block of rooms at the discount rate is set up. Thanks so much for your patience! We anticipate room reservation will be ready by early May.
