November 7, starting at noon, I’ll be talking at The Citadel library on the topic of Tolkien and Beowulf. It should be a low-key affair, but it should also be a fun one: I’ll mainly be presenting my current work on this subject, including my discoveries in the Tolkien Archive this summer.
In the past few weeks I’ve been at conferences in Decatur, GA and Phoenix, AZ, and I’m getting pretty tired. Thankfully, after this upcoming lecture I think I’ll be taking a speaking break until JordanCon in Roswell, GA next April. Not long after that, in May, I’ll be speaking about John Gower at the International Congress on Medieval Studies in Kalamazoo, MI.
And then … I don’t know. Thoughts?
