2014 is the sixtieth anniversary of Lord of the Rings. The Mithril Turtle is the University of Maryland College Park's commemoration of this important literary and cultural milestone. A variety of events are planned for September 1 – October 17, 2014.

Among these is an interdisciplinary discussion series. Tolkien's created world is realistically and compellingly realized, making it ideal for creative exploration of a wide range of disciplines. We invite proposals that use the lens of Lord of the Rings and Middle-earth to focus attention upon cutting edge research and scholarship.

This one day conference hosted by the Centre for Adaptations will bring together scholars and practitioners in a range of topics, such as the evolution of the biopic from the silent to the contemporary period, biopics of writers, sporting heroes, politicians, royalty and gangsters and debates concerning gender, sexuality, race and historical integrity.

Graduate Medievalists at Berkeley (GMB) invites papers that place the discipline of Medieval Studies in conversation with the theoretical concept of transnationalism. The past decade has seen an increased attention to writers and works outside of siloed national canons. In contemporary literary studies, this attention has produced the "transnational turn" in English departments and a burgeoning body of scholarship on the francophonie in French departments.
