Call For Papers

As part of its 20th anniversary celebrations, the Hungarian Tolkien Society, together with the Institute of English Studies at Károli Gáspár University, is organising an international conference related to the life and work of J. R. R. Tolkien between 23-26 June 2022. The topic of the Conference will be Myth, Imagination, Literature.

The topic of the Conference will be Myth, Imagination, Literature.

Date of the Conference: 23-26 June 2022. Location: Károli Gáspár University, Budapest.

This is the sixth Tolkien Conference to be held in Hungary. The goal of the Conference is to examine the creation of myth as a link between imagination and literature as related to literary theory and the various applicable interpretative frameworks. Presenters are invited to examine the topic with reference to Tolkien’s mythological system as found in his finished and unfinished texts. Participants may also present analyses of different authors’ fictional universes as they relate to myths and imaginative worlds, considering both their smaller literary frameworks and their wider cultural context.

The organisers call for submissions from presenters who are part of the Hungarian and international community of scholars on the work and ideas of Tolkien. The participation of young academics, undergraduates, graduates, and doctoral students from both the Hungarian and international academic community is particularly encouraged. International presenters will contribute to the further enrichment of the reception of Tolkien in Hungary.

Presenters are invited to send their abstracts of 250-300 words to the official e-mail address of the Conference (konferencia/at/tolkien/dot/hu) on or before 20 March 2022. The allocated time for each presentation is 20 minutes.

Presentations can be held in Hungarian or English.

In order to provide broad access to the conference presentations, proceedings will be published in a volume celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Hungarian Tolkien Society.
Due to the pandemic, it will be possible to take part in and attend the Conference online.
