Friday 17th August, Loughborough University
N.B. There will be a full timetable of events on Friday 17th alongside the the Postgraduate Symposium for the hundreds of other attendees not attending the symposium.
As a dedicated part of the larger conference to be held 16-20th August 2012, The Tolkien Society is hosting a postgraduate symposium on Friday 17th August covering all aspects of Tolkien studies.
The symposium presents a unique opportunity for postgraduates across different disciplines to share their research and scholarship, be it linguistics, literature, history, art, film or cultural studies. Selected papers will be invited for later publication. The symposium is led by an international interdisciplinary team of academics: Martin Barker, Dimitra Fimi and Corey Olsen. Following the symposium participants will have the opportunity to attend the Tom Shippey plenary session of the main conference.
The symposium is now fully subscribed, so the symposium booking form is no longer available.
