CALL FOR PAPERS
Conference Organized 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, A. E. Waite, Alice
Meynell, J. R. R. Tolkien, C. S. Lewis, Dorothy L,
Sayers, Evelyn Underhill, T. S. Eliot, W. H. Auden,
Robert Graves, 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, or
Those attending the conference are likely to be people
from a wide range of backgrounds - some extremely

minutes (4,000-6,000 words).
Academic panel: Dr Suzanne Bray (Lille Catholic
University), Dr Brian Horne (King's College, Londodn),

Please send any questions and propositions for papers
(250--350 words) to Dr Richard Sturch at
