TOLKIEN EVENTS AT THE BODLEIAN LIBRARIES
As part of Tolkien: Maker of Middle-earth, the Bodleian Libraries will be running a variety of events, lectures and activity days. Visitors will have the opportunity to learn about Tolkien’s languages, explore Tolkien’s Oxford and get up close and personal with Tolkien’s works.
Use your mobile to take the Tolkien Trail and explore Tolkien’s Oxford.
Tolkien’s turning point: Tolkien and the history of tongues
Tom Shippey’s lecture will move from the detail to the (eventual) design of Tolkien’s languages, and even the philosophical issues embedded in Tolkien’s fiction.
