Call for Papers Extended

Due to the volume of submissions, the C.S. Lewis Foundation is opening a second section of the Oxbridge Academic Roundtable for additional members and is extending the submission deadline.

Academics are invited to apply for participation in the Academic Roundtable, a program element of the C.S. Lewis Summer Institute at Oxbridge. The Summer Institute, convening in the cities and Universities of Oxford (July 26-30) and Cambridge (July 30-Aug 3), is an interdisciplinary conference that serves as a focal point of the C. S. Lewis Foundation’s mission to advance a renaissance of Christian scholarship and artistic expression among faculty.

All paper proposals submitted for selection must engage the theme of the 2011 Summer Institute, but may do so from any disciplinary or interdisciplinary perspective. Papers coming from the domain of Lewis or “Inklings” studies are welcome. Papers reflective of the tradition of Christian engagement of the culture or the academy will be especially welcome.

Note: Faculty whose paper proposals are accepted will be expected to attend all nine days of the Summer Institute and participate in all scheduled sessions of the Academic Roundtable.

Paper presentations must not exceed 20 minutes. Please submit by email, with attached MS Word documents, the following:
-A 300 word abstract detailing the paper, clearly describing the paper’s relationship to the Summer Institute theme

-A 2-page CV including complete contact information.

Acknowledgment will be made by email.

For a full description and important cost information, please visit the “Academic Roundtable” web page.

Extended deadline for proposal submission: February 15, 2011
