Question for the listening audience

Over the weekend, we had a question leading us to search through past conference programs.

Does anyone else besides me think it would be a good idea for the past conference talks to be listed somewhere on line?

For one, I think it would be great just to see what the talks have been, and for two, who the speakers have been, and three, if anyone is working on a PhD or book or something on one of the topics, they would have a resource.

What do you think?

  1. I've been hoping they would put those things online for a long time. I'm a poor student of philosophy, and there are tons of those talks I'd love to get my hands on.

  2. For a start, you might check if your nearest library has The Gift of Wonder which is the collected talks from 2000. Let us know if they don't, especially if it is a school library - we may have to act.

    This is the only collection of ChesterCon talks which I know of. Eventually we hope to do more; I look forward to it.

  3. If the topics are important, I have all of the conference brochures from 1988 through 2003 with the (unexplained) exception of 1993.

  5. Geir Hasnes has offered to post a list of past conference papers on the ACS website. I am sending him my brochure collection.

    Also, conference reports (including thumbnails of the papers) were published in Midwest Chesterton News and then in Gilbert Magazine. If I can find some time, I'll collect the MCN ones into one e-file. It can be made available by e-mail, then, to those interested.

  6. It would be nice to have mp3's of the talks made available post-conference for ACS members, as well.
