C. S. Lewis & Inklings Society Conference
Thank you for attending the 19th Annual C. S. Lewis & Inklings Society Conference!
We had a wonderful time hosting the 19th Annual C. S. Lewis & Inklings Society Conference. The theme of the conference took its cue from the book title on Mr. Tumnus’s shelf, to ponder not just the plausibility of “sub-created” worlds and their mythical inhabitants, but the ontology of ourselves. We invited presenters to look in the Inklings’ works for how they might have responded.
Next year's conference will be held at Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma. For more information you can visit the C. S. Lewis & Inklings Society webpage.
Here are a few moments from this year's conference:
Guests were treated to the dramatic re-enactment of an Inklings meeting with C. S. Lewis, his brother Warren, J. R. R. Tolkien, and Charles Williams.
The Mythopoeia Workshop was concluded with a Q & A time with the audience.
Elissa Branum presented her paper "Fear and Female Characterization in That Hideous Strength & A Wrinkle in Time" and won the Undergraduate Best Paper award.
Joshua Place presented his paper entitled "Mythopoeia in King Solomon's Mines" and won the Undergraduate Creative Writing award.
