The Call for Papers for Oxonmoot 2020 is now open. Proposals for papers must be submitted not later than Thursday 30th April, with a decision made by Thursday 21st May.
Papers should be 20 minutes maximum in length (with a further ten minutes allowed for questions): it is expected that the material is suitable for oral presentation (with the option of accompanying Powerpoint) and should not therefore be ‘read’ from a script.
Longer talks (e.g. art- or artefact- based) should be discussed by email with the Day Time Programme Co-ordinator.
Please note that papers are programmed on Friday and Saturday daytime. Please indicate if you are unavailable either day.
If the paper offered is in a cognate area of study, candidates pursuing a relevant MA, MSc, MRes, MSt, MPhil, DPhil, PhD or equivalent postgraduate degree from a recognised higher education institution will be eligible to apply for a Tolkien Society Bursary to support the cost of their attendance at Oxonmoot. Applications for this year’s bursaries are now open, and will close at midnight UK time on Sunday 22nd March, with decisions made by Thursday 30th April. Please indicate with the check-box on the form if you are going to apply for a bursary.
All presenters must be registered delegates at Oxonmoot. Click here to Book.
