The conference now has a new website - see here for details:

This conference calls for papers which take as their focus the dialogic, collective, and interpersonal sides of Lewis's oeuvre – in words as much as in paint. All topics will be considered. Please send max. 250-word abstracts to Nathan Waddell and Louise Kane (Conference Organizers) at wyndhamlewis2012@hotmail.co.uk by 1 October 2012.

We are also happy to receive (in addition to single papers) proposals for themed panels of 3 speakers.

Bowling Green State University Presents the 8th Annual Battleground States Conference
Title: Crossing Boundaries, Revealing Connections: Experiments in Interdisciplinary Studies
February 22nd – 24th 2013

Culture is mercurial and fluid. Thus research must create, but also dispute yet engage, a transformational and reflective understanding of our subjects.

But to find these connections we first need to explore and experiment.
