This form should be used to offer a talk or paper for presentation at Oxonmoot 2023.
Proposals for events and activities other than talks or papers should be submitted via the separate Call for Activities form which will be available from April.
We will notify you by 1 July whether your paper has been accepted for presentation.
The name you will be using at the event (if not your real name)
Please indicate your intended mode of presentation. In the event that we are unable to hold an in-person element to Oxonmoot, we will contact those whose papers have been accepted and who have indicated an intention to present in person and offer an online presentation slot. Equally, if travel restrictions prevent the presenter of an accepted paper travelling to Oxford, we will re-schedule to an online presentation slot. Owing to the current level of bookings for attendance in Oxford we can only accept requests to present in person from those who have already registered, or those who are applying for a Tolkien Society Bursary.
To help with scheduling the programme, please indicate the time zone from where you will present your paper if it is presented online. If you have indicated an intention to present in person, please give your home time zone in this box in case we have to move your presentation online. Please select the correct time zone for September.
Should your contribution be accepted, this will be published in the event programme
Should your contribution be accepted, we would like to use your profile picture in the event programme. Should you for any reason not wish to use a photograph of yourself in the programme, please provide an alternative image representative of yourself or your paper.
Graduate Students pursuing an MA, MSc, MRes, MSt, MPhil, DPhil, PhD or equivalent degree from a recognised higher education institution are eligible to apply for a Tolkien Society Bursary to support their attendance at Oxonmoot (Registration fee and, for in person delegates, travel and accommodation cost). Applications for Bursary support to attend Oxonmoot should be submitted by 15th May 2022. Please check the box below if you are applying for a Bursary.
