ITIA is a vibrant community of established scholars, post-docs, and graduate students. The weekly research seminar, at which internal and guest speakers discuss their ongoing work, is at the heart of the Institute’s day-to-day life.
ITIA’s graduate students edit an award-winning blog, Transpositions. ITIA also hosts the editorial office of the Journal of Inklings Studies, the leading academic journal on C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien and their literary circle, where a number of staff and students have editorial and administrative positions.
Both staff and students are engaged in writing and publishing. Some of our staff’s recent books and articles can be seen here. The student artists’ group The Transept meets weekly to discuss original work in all art forms.
ITIA is also associated with the Ashgate Studies in Theology, Imagination and the Arts book series.
The Institute regularly organises international conferences and arts & performance events.
