Tolkien 2019: Birmingham

Excellent news. Coming to Birmingham city centre next year, Tolkien 2019: the 50th anniversary celebration of The Tolkien Society, on Wednesday 7th August to Sunday 11th August 2019. It’ll be a major event, the organisers are currently expecting 500 attendees, and it’s likely to attract a large fellowship of stellar speakers and artists. There’s already a dedicated website, which has a Call for Papers that (very positively) doesn’t have constrained topic suggestions and which welcomes independent scholars…

“All speakers are welcome and need not be from an academic background.”
