The Mythgard Institute have announced four new online courses for Spring 2016. In addition to classes on Latin and modern fantasy, two will focus on Tolkien specifically.

The Bodleian Libraries and TORCH have released the video from “The Lord of the Rings: Tolkien’s Legacy”, an event held on 29th October to celebrate the 60th anniversary of The Lord of the Rings.

The Institute of Continuing Education at the University of Cambridge are offering a course entitled “Tolkien’s amazing world: understanding Middle-earth and how it came to be” this January.

The latest edition of the Journal of Inklings Studies has been published and features a number of Tolkien-related articles and reviews.

The map of Middle-earth annotated by illustrator Pauline Baynes and Tolkien himself has now been transcribed by Blackwell’s Rare Books.

This year’s Oxonmoot, held 10–13 September at St Antony’s College Oxford, was a great success. If you missed it, or you simply want to relive part of the experience, here are a few videos to whet your appetite.
