The Mythgard Institute at Signum University is a space that offers an array of open-access, educational programs and events for all to enjoy! Our purpose is to offer academic content, but in an accessible way: a fun and enthusiastic community, a space to share, curated, quality geeky content.
Join The Tolkien Professor, Dr. Corey Olsen, on a sentence-by-sentence journey through the text of Tolkien's epic fairy story, and explore Middle-earth through the magical game-world of Lord of the Rings Online.
Dr. Corey Olsen leads in-depth seminars on fantasy, science fiction, and other speculative works, as chosen by our donors – also known as the Council of the Wise. Join our current sessions, or catch up on previous books.
Mythgard Miscellany is a catch-all place for us to gather, share, and celebrate the works we love, and broaden out fantasy horizons beyond Middle-earth. Here we’ll share thoughts and insights about upcoming adaptations, existing works, and highlight the creativity of our community.
The Silmarillion Film Project
The Silmarillion Film Project (a/k/a SilmFilm) is a completely hypothetical discussion about what J.R.R. Tolkien’s Silmarillion would look like as a TV series.
Lord of the Rings Online
Through programs like Exploring the Lord of the Rings, the weekly adventures of Gryfflet, and special events with Wigend, we can explore Tolkien’s fantastical works and worlds in the virtual gaming environment of Lord of the Rings Online.
Mythgard Institute, in conjunction with Signum University, hosts conferences and gatherings (“moots”) around the world throughout the year.
