Welcome to the 7th Frances White Ewbank Colloquium on C.S. Lewis and Friends

On behalf of the C.S. Lewis & Friends Planning Committee, I would like to welcome you to the 7th Frances White Ewbank Colloquium. Many of you are returning for a second Colloquium, some for a third, and others have not missed a Colloquium since we started holding them in 1997. If this is your first Colloquium, however, you might be wondering about the "...& Friends" portion of our title. As Dave Neuhouser, our Scholar-in-Residence, has explained, that phrase has three meanings: "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." I hope that our three days together will extend our "friendship" as we converse amicably on all things Lewis and Lewis-related.

In planning our program, we have tried to find that perfect balance between too much and too little. If the committee has erred, it is probably on the side of too much. In addition to our plenary sessions, panels, and worship service - when we all can be together in one place at one time - we also have scheduled well over thirty academic papers and special sessions, which will run concurrently. Since you are likely to find yourself wanting to be in two places at once, hearing different papers delivered at the same time, we have asked our presenters to provide abstracts, which you'll find in the back of this program. Along with the abstracts, we have included brief biographies of our presenters - so it should be easy for you to contact a presenter if you would like to request a copy of that paper you missed hearing, but wish you hadn't. To further facilitate the sharing of work, we have placed a number of papers on our website (www.taylor.edu/cslewis), and in late fall we'll have hard copies of our Proceedings available.

I hope you enjoy this year's Frances White Ewbank Colloquium. If there's anything we can do to make your experience more satisfying, please let me or one of the Planning Committee members know.
