Event description


This conference will feature the work of Christian culture-creators and critical thinkers who engage the world from an imaginative and well-informed Christian perspective.

Keynote speakers include Randy Boyagoda (novelist and professor of English at the University of St. Michael's College in the University of Toronto), Wesley Hill (author, theologian, and professor at Trinity School of Ministry), James Calvin Schaap (author and retired English professor at Dordt College), Alissa Wilkinson (film critic and journalist for Vox.com), John Wilson (former editor of Books and Culture), and Bradford Winter (producer and writer of Berlin Station).

All are welcome--professors and instructors, independent scholars and interested citizens, graduate students and undergraduates. Culture-creators and critical thinkers in the humanities and arts are encouraged to participate.
