2009 Conferences

INKLINGS: DINOSAURS OR CONTEMPORARIES?
C.S. Lewis and Inklings Society 12th Annual Conference

March 26-28, 2009
Prince Conference Center at Calvin College
Grand Rapids, Michigan

The C.S. Lewis and Inklings Society is now accepting registrations* for its twelfth annual meeting on March 26-28, 2009, addressing the theme “Inklings: Dinosaurs or Contemporaries?” and featuring plenary speakers Peter Schakel (Hope College) and Devin Brown (Asbury College). Please click here to see the seminar schedule (as a PDF).

A final detailed schedule (PDF), including speakers and locations, is available.

In papers and plenary sessions, the conference will explore ways in which C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Owen Barfield and Charles Williams may (or may not) be particularly relevant to the literary, theological, philosophical and socio-political issues of our own early 21st century times. As in previous conferences, we would like to extend the conversation to include Dorothy Sayers as well, and we would like to open the conversation even a bit further this year by including G.K. Chesterton, a strong-minded proto-Inkling of sorts, in the mix. What might this diverse and pleasantly provocative circle of thinkers have to offer to the world of ideas that we find ourselves in?
