CFP: Tolkien at Kalamazoo: 2014 International Medieval Congress

| Filed under: Collecting NewsUrulöké | July 18, 2013 @ 10:35 pm (Views: 17025)

The Tolkien track at the International Medieval Congress is always interesting (at least, as far as I can tell from all the excited blog posts, tweets, and facebook comments from those attending. I have never made it there yet, myself.) If you would like to present there, the Call For Papers has been issued and it looks like there are three very interesting topics for next year!

The Tolkien at Kalamazoo group has been approved for 3 paper sessions at the International Medieval Congress held at Kalamazoo, Michigan in May 2014. The paper sessions are:

1. Tolkien's _The Fall of Arthur_
This session will discuss the publication of Tolkien's Arthurian poem, how it relates to other Tolkien works, and its relation to Tolkien's mythology.

2. Tolkien's Natural World and Science
This session will examine various aspects of Tolkien's mythology in relation to its physical and scientific constructs: plants, weather, cosmology, animals, geography, etc.

3. Tolkien and his Medieval Sources
This session will focus on Tolkien's medieval and linguistic backgrounds as sources for his scholarship and the construction of his legendarium

The deadline for submission of proposals for the paper sessions is September 1, 2013 to Dr. Brad Eden at brad.eden@valpo.edu. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thanks.
