Paradigms of Hope: Transcending Chaos & Transforming Culture

Call for Papers

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.

Acknowledgement will be made by email.

Deadline for proposal submission: January 15, 2010

Contact: Scott B. Key, Ph.D., Director, Academic Roundtable, Oxbridge 2011, C. S. Lewis Foundation, email: roundtable@cslewis.org.
