C.S. Lewis and the Inklings Colloquium at Taylor University, Indiana

I thought it was worth sharing, for thinkers and readers of C.S. Lewis and the Inklings, a combined conference of the C.S. Lewis & the Inklings Society with the 8th Frances White Ewbank Colloquium at Taylor University, May 31-June 2, 2012.

Speakers include: Alan Jacobs, Narnian biographer and English prof at Wheaton; Ron Reed, playwright and founder of the brilliant Pacific Theatre in Vancouver; and David Downing, author of a handful of Lewis books, prof at Elizabethtown, and a better blogger than me. The details, including a Call for Papers, are here.

If you aren’t familiar with Taylor University, it is a Christian undergrad school between Fort Wayne and Indianapolis. Notably, it holds the Edwin W. Brown Collection, a small but intriguing library of original manuscripts, first editions, letters and papers of C.S. Lewis and some of his Inkling friends.

About Brenton Dickieson

“A Pilgrim in Narnia” is a blog project in reading and talking about the work of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and the worlds they touched. As a "Faith, Fantasy, and Fiction" blog, we cover topics like children’s literature, apologetics and philosophy, myths and mythology, fantasy, theology, cultural critique, art and writing. This blog includes my thoughts as I read through Lewis and Tolkien and reflect on my own life and culture. In this sense, I am a Pilgrim in Narnia--or Middle Earth, or Fairyland. I am often peeking inside of wardrobes, looking for magic bricks in urban alleys, or rooting through yard sale boxes for old rings. If something here captures your imagination, leave a comment, “like” a post, share with your friends, or sign up to receive Narnian Pilgrim posts in your email box. Brenton Dickieson is a father, husband, friend, university lecturer, and freelance writer from Prince Edward Island, Canada. You can follow him on Twitter, @BrentonDana.
