About the Author: Nelson Goering

Nelson Goering grew up in the Ocooch Mountains in Wisconsin, and earned his BA at Grinnell College, Iowa. He completed his DPhil in comparative philology from Oxford in 2016 with a thesis on the linguistic aspects of Germanic alliterative metre. His wider research interests centre on the linguistics of the older Germanic and Indo-European languages. He is a lifelong reader of Tolkien, and is particularly interested in the intersection of Tolkien’s philological academic life with his creative works.
