Narnian Virtues Lecture
Tuesday, December 6, 2016, 7 – 8:30pm
The Marion E. Wade Center at Wheaton College presents a lecture at 7 p.m. on December 6 by Mark Pike on the Narnian Virtues Character Education Project.
Dr. Mark Pike is Professor of Education and Head (Dean) of the School of Education at the University of Leeds where Tolkien taught before moving to Oxford. Mark is the author of Mere Education – C.S. Lewis as Teacher for our Time (Lutterworth Press, Cambridge UK). He is Director of the Narnian Virtues Character Education research project, funded by the John Templeton Foundation. This project examines how young people can learn the virtues of wisdom, love, justice, integrity, self-control and fortitude as they read and respond to three of the Narnian novels by C.S. Lewis. The project focuses on the ways in which parents as well as school teachers inculcate the virtues underpinning good character.
The lecture will be held in the Marion E. Wade Center’s Bakke Auditorium and is free and open to the public. The Wade Center is located on northwest corner of Wheaton College’s campus on the corner of Washington St. and Lincoln Ave. in Wheaton.
