There will be a dedicated Tolkien Studies stream including sessions, panels and papers and for this a Call for Papers has been issued. The deadline is November 1, 2014.

We welcome proposals on any area of Tolkien Studies (the Legendarium, adaptations, reader reception and fan studies, media and marketing) from any disciplinary or interdisciplinary perspective. Sessions are scheduled in 1½ hour slots, typically with four papers or speakers per standard session.
