“Tolkien at Kalamazoo” is a fairly informal group that sponsors conference sessions every year at the International Congress on Medieval Studies at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo. A newly formed Facebook group, Tolkien at Kalamazoo, is open to anyone interested in Tolkien studies: https://www.facebook.com/groups/119241118286629/

Please note, though, that the group does not represent the Congress on Medieval Studies, its organizers, or Western Michigan University.

While the Facebook group is still in the process of gathering members, it is likely to be the place to go online in the future for information about upcoming sessions and deadlines, and for discussion of strategies for proposing new conference panels.
