IMC and Tolkien
The International Medieval Congress, which occurs straight after the Tolkien Society Seminar, will feature a number of Tolkien and Tolkien-related sessions which attendees of the Tolkien Society Seminar may wish to attend.
The IMC have traditionally held various events on the Sunday prior to the IMC and we eagerly await details of next year’s events which are usually free. One confirmed event for Sunday 5th July is a second-hand and antiquarian book-fair.
Dr Dimitra Fimi has written a blog post with details on the Tolkien and fantasy sessions at IMC 2015.
