The Tolkien Society invites submissions for papers to be given at the annual Seminar.
The seminar provides academics, students and independent scholars with a venue for interdisciplinary dialogue. This year the theme is "Journeys and destinations" in Tolkien's works. Participants are free to draw on any part of Tolkien's oeuvre, or to follow a thematic line within one text, or one text in it's variant forms (draft ms, published work, amended edition).
Format: The seminar will consist of a series of presentations over the day, presentations may be twenty minutes or forty-five minutes in length with a ten to fifteen minute question/discussion session. It is intended that there will be two morning sessions and one afternoon session.
Tolkien Society Seminar: Journeys & Destinations will take place at Sir John Soane's Museum, Lincoln's Inn Fields, London, WC2A 3BP
