From message board member visualweasel: It’s a little ways off yet, but Chris Vaccaro asked me if I could help spread the word on the Tolkien conference at the University of Vermont next April. I’ve attended this conference for the past three years and I can highly recommend it. Here’s the Call For Papers:
Please send a one-page abstract electronically to Christopher Vaccaro at email@example.com or by mail to James Williamson at 400 Old Mill, University of Vermont , Burlington , VT 0540 as early as possible. Please include Tolkien 2009 in the subject line. Deadline is January 30th, 2009. For further information, contact the conference organizers.
Ladies and gentlemen, sharpen your pencils.
