The Christian Literary Studies Group aims to explore some of the implications of the Christian faith in the study and teaching of literature. Members have a wide range of interests, from Anglo-Saxon texts to literary theory. The topics are not confined to British or even Anglophone literature, and extend to literary approaches to Biblical studies. Some CLSG members are academics and teachers, some professional or freelance writers, some are students and others ‘just interested’. Our project is to approach a Christian understanding of literature and of issues in current literary studies, and to encourage members in their own writings and readings.
We hold a seminar style conference each year, usually with a single theme. Details of conferences appear on this website.
We have a journal, The Glass, produced annually. Offers from members to contribute to the journal or to the conference are welcome.
