online reference materials such as course syllabi and outlines for
people who want to study Tolkien. The required reading lists will be
the most useful portions of these sites.
No one's class will be excluded provided there is a publicly
accessible page which describes the course and its study materials.
As I've already encountered a number of course listings that don't
offer the details I'm looking for, I see I'll have to provide a
secondary list of schools that offer classes relating to Tolkien.
I have a list of several hundred URLs I am going through. It will
take time. I decided to make this request in several places to speed
up the process. Anyone who can point me to a URL like this one
will be helping me. All suggestions are welcome. It doesn't matter
if I already have the URLs. I'm just trying to compile a list as
quickly as possible.
No ratings, recommendations, referrals, endorsements, or
blacklistings are involved. If an institution has added a class to
its curriculum and has published information about the class (even if
it's only a page under the instructor's account on the school
server), I want to see the URL.
Based on the feedback I've already received, I know this project will
evolve pretty fast.
