Past Writing and Literature Conferences

Each year the English department invites noted scholars and writers in the field to speak at our conference or several lectures on campus.

Our conferences, colloquiums, and lectures enrich the curriculum and provide models of how Christian scholars and writers have integrated their faith into their professional work. Past conference speakers have included Jeanne Murray Walker, Carl Dennis, Robert Siegel, Susannah Childress, Alistair McGrath, Mark Knoll, Andrew Delbanco, Marilyn Nelson, and Carlos Eire, among others.

Information on upcoming conferences and lectures sponsored by the English Department will be posted on the Wheaton College main event pages as soon as details are available. Please contact the English Academic Coordinator at 630.752.5051 or email English@wheaton.edu for additional information or if you have questions.
