Incredible Academia: C.S. Lewis & Inklings Conference

LeTourneau has always been a bit of a haven for nerds, and we embrace it. Who wouldn't want to be known as a university for people who are passionate about what they study!

We take all kinds at LETU - computer nerds, flight nerds, engineering nerds - but book nerds have historically been a minority.

Well, our literature lovers had a chance to shine this weekend, as the LeTourneau Department of Literature and Language Arts hosted the 16th annual C.S. Lewis and Inklings Conference. Students and faculty from over a dozen universities presented papers at the conference, including several of our own students including Dawn Martin and Felipe Vogel.

The C.S. Lewis and Inklings Conference represents just one example of ways we're working to support research opportunities across all disciplines.

"Since we are trying to support research for professors as well as undergrads, it seemed like a great opportunity," said event coordinator Dr. Randy Compton. "We've had courses in the past on C.S. Lewis, the Inklings and Tolkein, so it seemed like a great fit."
