Modtheow reminds us that The 45th International Congress on Medieval Studies is about to take place May 13-16 in, you guessed it, Kalamazoo, MI, U.S.A. The Congress is an annual gathering of over 3,000 scholars interested in Medieval Studies. Among the 600+ sessions of papers, panel discussions, round tables, workshops, and performances, the “Tolkien at Kalamazoo” group sponsors sessions specifically related to Tolkien. Modtheow was kind enough to highlight all the Tolkien-related sessions in this post on the Moots message board. The congress runs three and a half days, from Thursday morning to Sunday at noon. You can explore the entire schedule, registration fees, etc. at the official congress site here.
