Recordings of Tolkien Society Summer Seminar now available

Over the weekend of 3rd-4th July, the Society hosted its Summer Seminar on the theme of Tolkien and Diversity. Hosted online on Zoom, we welcomed 16 speakers and over 700 audience members to what was a spectacular event.

The individual paper recordings are now available for free on the Tolkien Society’s YouTube channel. Please note that a recording of Christopher Vaccaro’s paper – ‘Pardoning Saruman?: The Queer in Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings‘ – is not available, owing to a legal issue concerning unpublished archive material.

Individual links to the YouTube video of each paper can be found below. The order of the videos is in the order as presented over the weekend. To find out more about our seminar series, visit the Seminar page. You can also check out some of the proceedings of our previous seminars by visiting our store.
