CS Lewis Symposium Presentation

Here are a few details on the symposium, from the website of the event:

C.S. Lewis  – The Romantic Rationalist
November 2013 marks the 50th anniversary of C.S. Lewis’s death (1898-1963)

The talented British writer and respected scholar and teacher at Oxford University for 29 years and then a professor of Mediaeval and Renaissance literature at Cambridge University, C.S. Lewis is one of the twentieth-century greatest literary figures who opened doors to new worlds of ideas, fantastic discoveries and insights of human experience and enduring questions of human meaning. Covering a wide spectrum of topics, he wrote prolifically in many genres: novels, poetry, fantasy, science fiction, essays, letters, literary history and criticism, and apologetics.

Best-selling author of children’s literature, The Chronicles of Narnia, this distinguished academic and one of the most influential Christian apologists, continues to fascinate fifty years after his death.

Through this Symposium we seek to encourage some initial, yet substantial, steps toward a more historically and culturally informed explanation for the Oxford Don’s legacy and influential presence within current culture.
