Call for Chestertonian Papers

This from Jill:
Once again, I'm asking for you to share the information about the Mid-Atlantic Popular/American Culture Association conference. This year it will be held in Washington, DC. This will mark the third year of an official Chesterton panel at this event, a panel that was precipiated in the fall of 2007, when I presented a paper on Tolkien and Chesterton on the well-established Tolkien/Lewis panel. It is only thanks to Chesterton admirers and scholars of ACS that I've been able to make this little panel a reality.

Please, at your convenience, disseminate this information on your blog...and in any other way you can. If anyone mentions needing a little time beyond 7/19, I believe I can get a little wiggle room.

Thanks, blessings, Jill
