Tolkien 2019 - submissions

Jan 21

I've got a submission in for a presentation at the 50th anniversary gathering of the Tolkien Society in Birmingham this August - anyone else here going? You should think about submitting a paper idea as well!

I have heard that Wayne and Christina have a panel on Tolkien collecting already in the works, so I am definitely looking forward to that.

Submissions are due February 1 - more info available from the Tolkien 2019 call for papers. That gives you just over a week left to get those paper ideas put together.

I have submitted my proposal for a paper titled “‘I will do my duty to God and the King’ – J.R.R. Tolkien and R.S.S. Baden-Powell”.

With some focus on Baden-Powell's 1908 Scouting for Boys, this is an investigation of parallels between these two Englishmen. This is of course made interesting because of our knowledge that the Birmingham Oratory in 1909 created three patrols of Scouts “under the brothers Tolkien” (see the Oratory web-page)

Looking forward to attending this one!
