CFP: ‘Overlooked Aspects of Middle-earth’

LEMBAS EXTRA: CALL for PAPERS – DEADLINE EXTENDED

Between Nov. 2014-Feb. 2015, the Dutch Tolkien Society, Unquendor, intends to publish the next issue of its scholarly journal, Lembas Extra. This will be a themed volume on ‘Overlooked Aspects of Middle-earth,’ and cover a wide range of possible subjects, from, for instance–

  • ‘The Animal World of Middle-Earth’
  • ‘Medical Aspects of Tolkien’s World’
  • ‘Gollum as a junkie’
  • ‘The Economy of Laketown /Númenor /Gondolin’ (or whatever strikes your fancy)
  • ‘Middle-earth Games and Sports’

A subject (or approach) does not have to be unique per se, but for this issue, we definitely prefer the less trodden paths.

We invite Tolkien scholars and students from all disciplines to send their proposals to Cecile van Zon before May 31st, 2014.

Finished papers will be approximately 5000-7,500 words (including footnotes and/or a bibiography) and written in English. You will be notified before the end of May if your proposal has been accepted. The deadline for finished papers will be November 1st, 2014.
