Re: [mythsoc] Digest Number 1634--NEH Institute
- To answer Lizzie's question, the Tolkien Institute at Texas A&M, mentioned
on Verlyn Flieger's web site, is a one-shot NEH-funded institute for
secondary school teachers.
I was contacted about this in the planning stages and asked if I was
willing to participate, but didn't make the cut as a scholar (no wonder,
with the likes of Verlyn in the pool--a heck of a fun person as well as a
dazzling scholar, BTW). As I understood it at the time, the idea was to
get Tolkien scholars and high school teachers together so the latter could
get ideas and inspiration for teaching Tolkien at the secondary school
