Call for Papers: 5th International Tolkien Conference in Hungary [31 Days of Tolkien]
It is great to see that J.R.R. Tolkien is finally coming into his own – not only as one of the most popular authors of all times but also as a subject of serious research. The Hungarian Tolkien Society is one of the groups leading the fray and has invited scholars to submit papers for their 2015 conference in Budapest.
From the Call of Papers:
J. R. R. Tolkien: Individual, Community, Society
The chief focus of the upcoming 5th International Tolkien Conference is the social aspect of Tolkien’s oeuvre, especially the role of the individual in the community. Researchers are encouraged to explore the topic in light of its literary and cultural implications, as well as to discuss in a philosophical-theological or literary context the ethical dimensions of the societies depicted in Tolkien’s works.
Papers more loosely connected to the main subject are also welcome. We wish to reach and involve in the expanding field of Tolkien Studies more and more university students, professors and researchers both in Hungary and abroad.
Presentations should not be longer than 20 minutes. Please send a 250-300-word-long abstract of your talk not later than February 22, 2015 to the e-mail address konferencia(at)tolkien(dot)hu.
