The Frances White Ewbank Colloquium on C.S. Lewis & Friends

June 1-4, 2006
Taylor University, Upland, IN

Welcome to the Fifth Biennial Frances White Ewbank Colloquium on C.S. Lewis and Friends. This is an exciting time for Lewis studies with even more people interested in him than usual because of the recent movie, "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe." There have been many new books published on Lewis and many extra conferences due to the interest generated by the movie. Our colloquium is interested in more than Narnia and even more than just Lewis. The "and Friends" in the title has a triple meaning. It refers to the fact that we are interested in the friends of Lewis, both his contemporaries and otherwise. Also, we ourselves are friends of these authors. Finally, because of our common love for these men and women, we are friends of each other. We are friends in the sense that, to use George MacDonald's words, "we are alike enough to understand each other, and unlike enough to interest and aid each other." We believe that the varied program we have planned will promote conversations among "friends" whether scholars or not and will occur outside of the scheduled sessions as well as within them. Enjoy the conversation!
