Academics are invited to apply for participation in the Academic Roundtable, a program element of the C.S. Lewis Summer Institute - "Oxbridge 2014."

The Institute will take place in the cities and Universities of Oxford and Cambridge, England, from July 21-31, 2014. The theme of the conference is "Reclaiming the Virtues: Human Flourishing in the 21st Century."

The Academic Roundtable, part of Oxbridge 2014, will be a smaller, ten day community of interdisciplinary scholarly engagement, which will take place during the afternoons of the Institute.

Faculty from diverse disciplines will share their papers with each other, offering insights and critical comments from their respective vantage points. Each session of the Academic Roundtable will also feature small group interchange with at least one of the Summer Institute's plenary speakers.

All paper proposals submitted for selection must engage the theme of Oxbridge 2014, but may do so from any disciplinary or interdisciplinary perspective. Papers coming from the domain of Lewis or "Inklings" studies are welcome. Papers reflective of the tradition of Christian engagement of the culture or the academy will be especially welcome.

Paper presentations must not exceed 20 minutes. Please submit by email, as attached Microsoft Word documents, the following: [a] a 300 word abstract detailing the paper, clearly describing the paper's relationship to the Summer Institute theme; and [b] a 2 page CV, including complete contact information. Acknowledgement will be made by email.

Deadline for proposal submission: February 15, 2014

Faculty whose paper proposals are accepted will be expected to attend all ten days of the Summer Institute and participate in all scheduled sessions of the Academic Roundtable.
