    Dear Prof. John Eade,

    I’m currently researching ideas about pilgrimage as part of my PhD in English at the University of Newcastle in Australia. (In fact, I’m giving a paper at Imperial College in London this June: “the Idea of the journey in Spiritual Memoir”)

    Although unfortunately I’m unable to attend this pilgrimage workshop, I’d love to be added to a mailing list related to your group so stay informed of upcoming events. A friend, Kath McPhillips from Newcastle University gave me a link to your page.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Regards, Diane
