The title of the session I wd have been part of is
'Medieval World-Building: Tolkien, His Precursors and Legacies'
The papers making up this session, which wd have been moderated by Kristine Swank, were
• 'Tolkien, Robin Hood, and the Matter of the Greenwood' by Perry Neil Harrison
• 'Tolkien's Golden Trees and Silver Leaves: Do Writers Build the Same World for Every Reader?' by Luke Shelton,
• 'Infinity War of the Ring: Parallels between the Conflict within Sauron and Thanos' by Jeremy Byrum, and
• 'Valinor in America: Faerian Drama and the Disenchantment of Middle-earth' by myself.
I still need to do a lot on my piece, though I'd already written enough to fill my allotted time; when I get done with my current deadline I need to get back to work on this.
*that is, not counting the Tolkien Seminar, held each year the Wednesday before the conference officially starts, adjacent to the official event but not part of it.
