The 11th Annual Tolkien conference will be held at UVM on April 11th through 13th next year, with a theme of “Bombadil and Other Middle-earth Mysteries”. They’re looking for papers along that theme (although any others will be considered as well), due in on January 18th, 2014.
We seek 20-minute papers on any topic related to Tolkien or his texts, but the topic “Bombadil and Other Middle-earth Mysteries” will be given priority consideration.
Please send a one-page abstract electronically to Dr. Chris Vaccaro at firstname.lastname@example.org as early as possible. Please include “Tolkien 2014” in the subject line. Abstract deadline is Saturday, January 18th, 2014.
This year’s keynote address will be given by Dr. Kristine Larsen, Professor of Physics and Astronomy at Central Connecticut State University.
