      Subject: Tolkien at Kalamazoo: Call for papers 2014 International Medieval Congress

      Please excuse any duplication.  Please forward to any other listservs, interest groups, or individuals.

      The Tolkien at Kalamazoo group has been approved for 3 paper sessions at the International Medieval Congress held at Kalamazoo, Michigan in May 2014.  The paper sessions are:

      1.  Tolkien's _The Fall of Arthur_

                This session will discuss the publication of Tolkien's Arthurian poem, how it relates to other Tolkien works, and its relation to Tolkien's mythology.

       2.  Tolkien's Natural World and Science

                This session will examine various aspects of Tolkien's mythology in relation to its physical and scientific constructs:  plants, weather, cosmology, animals, geography, etc.

      3.  Tolkien and his Medieval Sources

               This session will focus on Tolkien's medieval and linguistic backgrounds as sources for his scholarship and the construction of his legendarium

      The deadline for submission of proposals for the paper sessions is September 1, 2013 to Dr. Brad Eden at brad.eden@....  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thanks.
