CW conference: call for papers
- Notice the topic: plenty of room for WIlliams-and-Lewis, and even
>Call for Papers:
>Conference Organised by the Charles Williams Society;
>Charles Williams and His Contemporaries.
>St. Hilda's College, Oxford, U.K. 4th/6th July 2008.
>The conference aims at setting the life and work of Charles Williams (1886 -
>1945) in its context. Of particular interest, of course, will be papers on
>Williams himself and papers which deal with the lives and work of those who
>knew him in London and/or Oxford, and, arguably, influenced him or were
>influenced by him (e.g. Coventry Patmore, Alice Meynell, A.E. Waite, Robert
>Bridges, J.R.R. Tolkien, T.S. Eliot, C.S. Lewis, Evelyn Underhill, Dorothy
>L. Sayers, W.H Auden, John Heath-Stubbs) But papers need not be confined to
>these areas and submissions on a variety of aspects of the period will be
>welcomed. They may cover literary, theological, historical, biographical
>Those attending the conference are likely to be people from a wide range of
>backgrounds -some extremely knowledgeable about Williams and others much
>less so. Papers as presented should be prepared with this in mind - though
>versions for publication will need the usual supporting apparatus of
>footnotes, references etc.
>We are asking that papers last approximately 20 - 25 minutes; 4,000 - 6,000
>Academic panel: Dr. Suzanne Bray (Lille Catholic University), Dr. Brian
>Horne (King's College, London), Professor Grevel Lindop (Manchester
>University), Dr. Stephen Medcalf (Sussex University). (Prof. Charles
>Huttar, Hope College, Holland, USA)
>Please send any questions and propositions for papers (250 - 350 words) to
>Dr. Richard Sturch at charles_wms_soc@...
><mailto:charles_wms_soc@...> by 11th January 2008. (There are
>underlines in the spaces between the words 'charles', 'wms' and 'soc')
- oh, that would be a nice way to spend the day after my birthday!
*drool*... I might even try to write a paper, in the meantime, as I
float... the Archbishop of Canterbury is the President of the Charles
Williams Society! wow, I did not know that.
