MASTERS OF MAGIC: ESSAYS ON WIZARDS IN WESTERN CULTURE
Deadline for Proposals: September 15, 2004

In J. R. R. Tolkien's THE LORD OF THE RINGS, the Hobbits are warned, "Do not
meddle in the affairs of wizards"; yet, few readers today, in a time when
the wizard features so prominently in both popular culture and scholarship,
would choose to follow this admonition. Accepting this as a given, proposals
are now being accepted for an essay collection co-edited by Charlotte A. T.
Wulf and Michael A. Torregrossa and investigating the figure of the wizard
in Western culture.

"MERE CHRISTIANS, THEN & NOW"

How do the Inklings define "mere Christianity"? What essential doctrines
do they share in their Christian community? How do they express these
ideas through imaginative literature, philosophy, and theology? How is
"mere Christianity" applicable to contemporary Christianity?

Thematic papers on the essence of Christianity as developed in the
apologetic, theological, and/or literary works of C.S. Lewis and/or the
Inklings are especially welcome. To be eligible for conference acceptance,
complete papers or 250-word abstracts are due by March 8, 2004 (we have

There have been several milestones met and passed since Edgar Rice Burroughs, the Grandfather of science fiction, introduced us to extra terrestrial life on Mars. Through science fiction we have engaged our minds and souls in the modern manifestation of philosophy and often crossed the line into technical prophecy.
