Sharin sends in this information for anyone living in the vicinity of the Twin Cities: In a little more than a week, I will be offering a Tolkien course in the English department at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. The course is entitled “Tolkien: Medieval or Modern?” This three-week Mayterm meets from May 27-June 12 (M-Th from 9:05-1:10). There are still a few seats available. First-time, non-degree-seeking students can enroll in the University of Minnesota’s “ENGL 3020” here. For a course description, go here and scroll down to “Hot courses.”
