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.

THE PARADOX OF THE OTHER: DIFFICULTIES IN CLASSIFICATION

Eleventh Annual Brooklyn College Graduate English Conference

Saturday, May 5, 2018

“If one could possess, grasp, and know the other, it would not be other,” wrote Emmanuel Levinas.  The paradox Levinas identifies is at the heart of this conference’s concerns. Despite our definitions – the unknown, the demonic, and the withdrawn, for example – the “other,” by definition, must elude our grasp.  Given this un-givenness, why do scholars continue to pursue questions of otherness? What is it about otherness that provokes or induces scholarly interest?
