Here’s an announcement for the conference at which I’ll give a keynote address in June. Hope you can come! Spread the word.
ANNOUNCEMENT: C.S. Lewis and Friends Colloquium with special theme of FRIENDSHIP
JOIN US at The Center for the Study of C.S. Lewis & Friends at Taylor University for our 10th Ewbank Colloquium, June 2-5, 2016.
We are excited to announce that our keynote speakers for 2016 include Dr. Diana Glyer, Colin Duriez, and Sørina Higgins.
The Colloquium will honor two important friendships. Taylor University professor Dr. David Neuhouser, who established the colloquium in 1997, and Dr. Ed Brown, whose collection of books and manuscripts became the heart of the Center, both passed away in 2015. Also we will celebrate the 90th anniversary of the first meeting of Lewis and Tolkien, without which…well, who wants to imagine a world without that friendship?
Therefore, the Colloquium will have a special theme: Friendship. Paper proposals are invited on the conference theme, as well as any subject related to Lewis and friends (broadly defined).
Please visit our website at http://www.taylor.edu/cslewis to find information on the call for papers, the student essay contest and registration. This year we invite submissions of creative work—poetry, fiction, essay, drama, film, visual art, musical composition, etc.—that responds to or is influenced by the Lewis Circle.
Make your plans now to join us!
