Kristine Larsen: “‘Forgot even the stones’: Stone Monuments and Imperfect Cultural and Personal Memories in The Lord of the Rings” #s227 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds #Tolkien
Larsen: (forgetting) family history in the #LordoftheRings: the hobbits mistake the Trolls as real, while Aragorn remembers the story of their petrification from Bilbo #s227 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds #Tolkien
Larsen: forgetting (“other”) cultural history: the Púkel-men at Dunharrow - the head of the Gondorian king on the way to Mordor. #s227 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds

Penelope Holdaway on “Longing to Remember, Dying to Forget: Memory and Monstrosity” #s227 #imc2018 @IMC_Leeds
Holdaway: is the monstrous located in the physical? Cohen’s 7 theses may offer a broader way to look at the monstrous #s227 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds
Holdaway: more emphasis on cultural definitions of the monstrous - Túrin’s otherness is a cultural otherness, where does that cross into the monstrous? #s227 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds

.@AranelParmadil: #Tolkien is interested in record-keeping and ways of preservation past history, but Middle-earth itself and its nexus of texts draws attention to the insufficiency of memory via written texts #s227 #imc2018 @IMC_Leeds
.@AranelParmadil: Tolkien’s recurring “Atlantis” dream: inherited memory as a neat way to solve the problem of the insufficiency of textual memory? #s227 #imc2018 @IMC_Leeds

Gergely Nagy on “#Tolkien Remembering Tolkien: Textual Memory in the 1977 Silmarillion” #s227 #imc2018 @IMC_Leeds
Nagy: the 1977 Silmarillion as a “textual field” - it was accused of reducing the multiplicity of the variants that #Tolkien created. #s227 #imc2018 @IMC_Leeds
Nagy: the making of the Silmarils - the diction around Feanor’s actions changed subtly throughout the different versions. Christopher Tolkien seems to have been attuned to the sounds of language when choosing between versions. #s227 #imc2018 @IMC_Leeds
