This panel is interested in exploring ways in which Tolkien creates a
grounded, self-consistent fantastic world in Middle Earth. Papers may focus
on topics such as: his relationship with nature and the natural world; the
relationship of Middle-Earth to England and to JRRT's life experiences; the
sense of history in Middle-Earth and how it shapes the identities of
characters such as Aragorn; the treatment of maps and geography in his
writings; film adaptations of his works; and any other related topics.

Abstracts of 250-300 words should be emailed to Kristin Noone at by February 27, 2009. Please indicate any A/V
