Call for Papers: Tolkien/Jung [long post]
- CALL FOR PAPERS: Panel on The Lord of the Rings series (books and films)
DEADLINE: June 1, 2005
The dates of the conference are Thursday-Saturday, August 4-6, 2005.
I am organizing a panel on The Lord of the Rings series (books and films)
for the 2005 Conference of The Jungian Society for Scholarly Studies.
The Lord of the Rings series (books and films) is one of the most
discussed series in recent years. It is the focus of many serious
discussions, one of which is situated within Jungian theory: the Shadow
(Gollum, Saruman, Sauron), the hero archetype (Aragorn, Frodo),
Synchronicity, Instinct and the Unconscious, etc. Of course, any other
Jungian and/or post-Jungian approach to The Lord of the Rings series
(books and films) is fine to propose.
Proposals may be sent as attachments (MS-Word, or Corel WordPerfect) to:
Proposals by mail are submitted to:

Below is the information part of the CFP for the 2005 Conference, which
gives you some information about the conference.
The Jungian Society for Scholarly Studies (TJS3) -- founded by a group of
dedicated scholars -- studies, disseminates, and develops the works and
theories of Carl Gustav Jung and the Post-Jungians, especially as applied
to literature, the humanities, and the fine and performance arts. TJS3
organizes a yearly interdisciplinary academic conference at which members
can present scholarly papers, organize roundtable discussions, and provide
interactive workshops in which Jungian psychological theory is used to
advance awareness of the individual and of the individual's connection to
the entire life community.
The 2005 TJS3 Conference will be held at the University of RI, Alan Shawn
Feinstein College of Continuing Education (CCE), Providence, RI.
Conference-priced hotel rooms have been arranged at the newly opened The
Hotel Providence, 1-1/2 blocks from the CCE building.
