Join Corey Olsen, the Tolkien Professor, on a four-week, eight-class journey through The Two Towers. In our discussions, we work our way through the book a few chapters at a time, paying special attention to the mythic elements in Tolkien’s story. The class is open to everyone, and recordings will be posted afterwards.
This non-credit class is a pilot course for the new Mythgard Academy courses, free courses organized and hosted by the Mythgard Institute. If this kind of class seems like a good idea, and if you would like to have a vote in deciding what other books we read and discuss together, you might want to participate by donating to Signum University.
