      > One of the highlights of the 2002 ICFA conference was the panel
      discussion
      > bringing together Tolkien specialists to talk about their responses to
      > Jackson's first film. This proposed panel is intended to be a
      continuation
      > of that discussion, focusing on The Two Towers and, if participants
      are
      > interested, upon the Extended Edition of The Fellowship of the Ring.
      >
      > The deadlines for this call and for submission to ICFA dictate that
      neither

      > have definite opinions about the film(s) already, so I'm prepared to
