Dimitra Fimi's class

So, today began this fall's session of Dr. Dimitra Fimi's online Tolkien class, J. R. R. TOLKIEN: MYTH AND MIDDLE EARTH IN CONTEXT. I've been interested in this since first hearing about it a few years ago, and this time around I'm going to be auditing it. Here's a brief description of the course:

And here's more information about the specific topic for each of the course's ten weeks, presented in slideshow fashion:

In addition to the main course, I'm v. much looking forward to the guest lectures by T. A. Shippey and Jn Garth. Looks like it'll be an interesting ten weeks.
