These seminars focus on the intersection of faith and the academy with special attention to the life of the teacher/scholar within a family of disciplines (e.g. fine arts, humanities, sciences, social sciences, professions). Conducted regionally, these seminars normally take place in a weekend format with periodic five day seminars in Oxford.
The regional Inklings Weekends focus on the whole person and bring young scholars together with members of the Inklings Fellowship and other interested Christians. This retreat encourages the spiritual life of the scholar in communion with other Christians outside the academy in order to maintain perspective. The retreat settings are chosen for their natural beauty and architectural charm so as to contribute to the overall experience.
The Inklings Institute is a week long, interdisciplinary conference conducted each summer in the United States and triennially in Oxford. The institute focuses on the interdisciplinary nature of the academy and the need for the balanced life; including intellectual, emotional, aesthetic, social, and spiritual dimensions. It involves lectures, seminars, performances, corporate worship, and communal dining designed to encourage the understanding that the Christian life of the mind is more than disembodied gnosticism.
Through partnership with several major private collections, we collaborate with local churches to place a major exhibit of first editions, letters, ephemera, and artifacts related to the Inklings of Oxford on exhibit in secular settings. We prefer to work with municipal and university libraries which provide a non-religious setting for the presentation of the Inklings to the broad public. Contact us to discuss the possibility of bringing an Inklings Exhibition to your city or university.
