Brad Eden on “A Man of His Time?: Tolkien and the Edwardian Worldview” #s849 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds #Tolkien
Eden will take us through ideas and concepts of the Edwardian cultural milieu that he hopes will inspire further research on #Tolkien’s cultural context. #s849 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds #Tolkien
Eden: there are subtle shifts between Victorian and Edwardian cultures which we need to take into account when examining #Tolkien’s context. #s849 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds #Tolkien

Claudio Testi on “Frodo Surrealist: André Breton and J. R. R. Tolkien on Dreams” #s849 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds
Testi argues that there are surrealist moments in The #LordoftheRings via dreams. Breton’s manifesto attempted to merge reality and dreams via surrealism. He also talked about dreaming while awake. #s849 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds
Testi: 1936: International Surrealist Exhibition in London with an abstract and concrete show in Oxford. Tolkien was then working on The Lost Road and soon after The #LordoftheRings. #s849 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds

Joshua Richards on “Tolkien’s Agrarianism in its Time” #s849 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds #Tolkien
Richards: can we really accept that the early Middle-earth is the same as the later one? Themes may be the same, but the socio-cultural context is different. Focus on one version of Middle-earth in this paper: the earliest #LordoftheRings drafts. #s849 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds
Richards: earlier stages of #LordoftheRings - use of agrarianism by #Tolkien to test its boundaries, especially in the Shire. The hobbits are creatures of an agrarian society, well-ordered and well-farmed. #s849 #imc2018 @IMC_Leeds

Anna Vaninskaya on “Longing for Death: Tolkien and Sehnsucht” #s849 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds #Tolkien
Vaninskaya will focus on the recurrent motif in #Tolkien of the desire to voyage to Elvenhome via the concept of Sehnsucht (Longing) #s849 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds
Vaninskaya: William Peter’s “imitation” of Schiller interprets the “other” land of desire in a non-Christian context - compare with Tolkien’s Undying Lands. #s848 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds
