The International Congress on Medieval Studies will be celebrating it’s 47th year this year in Kalamazoo, MI. The conference takes place May 10-13, and features many lectures, panels, and scholarly discussions on medieval topics.
There are many sessions on Tolkien or related topics this year including Tolkien’s poetry, songs, and theology.
If you are interested in attending this year, you have to register at the WMU site, where you can find the full conference schedule. You can view the Tolkien-related sessions here, compiled by TheOneRing.Net.
Please be aware this is a scholarly event.
And, being a Michigan native from the area, I highly recommend taking a trip over to Bilbo’s Pizza in a Pan if you go!
