Tolkien Studies at Popular Culture Association 2015 meeting


After a successful trial run last April at the Popular Culture / American Culture Association conference, a regular Tolkien Studies stream has been approved for the annual conference. The organizer of the Tolkien Studies area, Robin Reid, has issued a general call for papers for the 2015 conference to be held in New Orleans, April 1-4, 2015:

“We welcome proposals on any area of Tolkien Studies (the Legendarium, adaptations, reader reception and fan studies, media and marketing) from any disciplinary or interdisciplinary perspective. Sessions are scheduled in 1½ hour slots, typically with four papers or speakers per standard session.”

Proposals have to be submitted through the conference website by November 1st at http://ncp.pcaaca.org.

The full call for papers and contact details can be found here: PCA 2015 CFP [pdf]

To follow the progress of the conference planning, you can always join the Tolkien Studies at PCA Facebook group.
