Omentielva Lempea: Call for Papers
- The Fifth International Conference on J.R.R. Tolkien’s Invented
Languages, Omentielva Lempea, takes place in Helsinki, Finland, on
8 - 11 August 2013.
For this conference we call for scholarly papers on all aspects
of any or all of Tolkien's invented languages, in any or all of
their conceptual stages.
The proceedings of the conference will be published in the fifth
volume of Arda Philology, to appear in 2014. (The fourth volume will
hopefully appear before Omentielva Lempea.)
To propose a paper, send an abstract to Beregond, Anders Stenström,
the Omentielva Secretary. Do not make the abstract too short; a couple
of hundred words will normally be needed (but it of course depends on
the complexity of your subject). You do not need to have your
conclusions all worked out in the proposal, but delineate how you
intend to reach them. Append a short presentation of yourself (four
lines or less). Specify which sources you will rely on, and whether
you will discuss any previous studies.
We expect the presentation of a paper to take 40 minutes. But we aim
at a single-thread programme, and so can accommodate papers of
varying length. Please specify how long you expect to speak, and any
technical equipment you need. Be prepared for questions and
discussion at the end of your presentation.
Copyright or similar considerations may apply. Before publication
you have to provide a copy of your paper in which all quotation is
highlighted and the source given.
Append a short presentation of yourself (four lines or less).
If you wish to submit a paper but can not attend the conference,
you may send a paper to be read and discussed. In the latter case,
state any directions or preferences you may have for the presentation.
