      I thought people might be interested.--David Lenander
      The organizer of this previously organized the 2nd Mankato Tolkien Conference, a
      few years ago. That was when he was an undergraduate, at Mankato State
      University.

      Concerning Hobbits and Other Matters:
      Tolkien Across the Disciplines

      The University of St. Thomas
      TOLKIEN CONFERENCE
      Thursday, April 26, 2001


      CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS
      We encourage presentations from many different disciplines. Our
      goal is to look at Tolkien from such various persepctives as those
      of literature, anthropology, life sciences, philosophy, geography,
      theology, linguistics, history, mythology, education, and more.

      SCHOLARLY PAPERS should be based mainly on some aspect of
      J.R.R. Tolkien's work or life. Sessions will be scheduled for one hour
      and fifteen minutes and will typically include two presenters. Therefore,
      each paper should be limited to 20-25 minutes with about 10 minutes
      for questions and discussion.

      PANEL DISCUSSIONS among three to five scholars may focus on
      a specific topic related to J.R.R. Tolkien's work, or may provide a
      variety interdisciplinary perspectives. Panel discussions will be allotted
      the full session time.

      GUIDELINES FOR PROPOSALS
