Under the current political climate, reality is a territory in constant epistemological dispute. The notion itself is frequently addressed throughout different disciplines, such as Literature, Cinema, as well as Physics and Cybernetics, revealing a questioning of power and its representations. Who determines what is real? How do we, as scholars, engage with reality(ies) through our work? How does Academia manage this category of knowledge?

The TROPOS organizing committee welcomes submissions for papers or organized panels in English, French, and Spanish that explore possible answers to these and other questions as represented in cultural production of the Romance World. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

In his introduction to J.R.R. Tolkien: Author of the Century, Tom Shippey argues that “The Lord of the Rings has established itself as a lasting classic, without the help and against the active hostility of the professionals of taste; and has furthermore largely created the expectations and established the conventions of a new and flourishing genre.” The impact Tolkien has made on not only high fantasy, but also on the importance of language and mythology studies is undeniable. The influences of World War I, modern industrialization, and more are evident in his works as socio-political commentary, despite his personal dislike of allegory. Tolkien studies reflects a thriving culture in and outside the university.
