An Academic Weekend

Between finishing a conference paper and supervising social club initiation activities at Faulkner, it’s a miracle I was able to post anything on this site this week. This morning I’m off to Mobile, where I’ll be presenting a paper at the University of Mobile Forum on Christianity and the Liberal Arts.

I’m looking forward to this event, not least because the plenary speaker is Louis Markos of Houston Baptist University. Prof. Markos developed a great course for the Teaching Company on the life and writings of C. S. Lewis, and he has written worthwhile books such as From Achilles to Christ: Why Christians Should Read the Pagan Classics. Spending some time with him and the other scholars at this event should be rewarding. I’ll also be scouting papers for possible publication in the Journal of Faith and the Academy.

So while I am expanding my mind over the next couple of days, I probably won’t be posting on the blog. See you Monday!
