Call for Papers: Mythmoot III

Mythmoot III is seeking proposals for 15-20 minute papers on Tolkien and other speculative media. Some themes of particular interest include:
  • Tolkien in the 21st century– how Tolkien’s works are being engaged with by new generations of fans
  • Out of this World – Traditional and new angles on fantasy and science fiction
  • A Game of Games– analysis of fantasy/sci fi gaming from pen-and-paper to MMORPGs
Mythmoot III will be held in Baltimore, MD from on January 10 and 11.
Though Mythmoot III will take place after the premier of the third film, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, it will include sessions about the latest film and the trilogy as a  whole, along with guest speakers, musicians, artists, a reception and banquet, paper presentations, and fun and interactive sessions for fans and academics alike..
First-time presenters are especially encouraged to submit a proposal (250-500 words) proposals@mythgard.org no later than midnight EDT Sunday, August 31, 2014.
