Call for Papers

The Fourth Annual Tolkien Conference at the University of Vermont will
be held in Burlington, VT, on the weekend of April 13-15, 2007. We are
inviting submissions for papers relating to any aspect of the works of
J. R. R. Tolkien. We are particularly interested in papers on The
Silmarillion (to commemorate the thirtieth anniversary of its
publication) and on Smith of Wootton Major (to honor Verlyn Flieger's
recent annotated edition), though twenty-minute papers on any
Tolkien-related topic are certainly welcome. The keynote speaker this
year will be esteemed Tolkien scholar Douglas Anderson, editor of The
Annotated Hobbit and of Tales Before Tolkien: The Roots of Modern
Fantasy.

Please send one-page abstracts by January 15, 2007, to Dr. Chris
Vaccaro, cvaccaro_at_uvm.edu.
