The International Congress on Medieval Studies at Kalamazoo at Western Michigan University, is one of the oldest and most prestigious conferences on Medieval Studies in the world. The conference is now in its forty-fourth year, and for the past nine years has featured sessions on Tolkien, including papers and round-table discussions. This year, the conference will take place between the 7th and 10th of May 2009, and the programme has just been made available here. I will be taking part in the roundtable discussion on Tolkien’s “On Fairy Stories”, presided by Douglas A. Anderson and Verlyn Flieger, on Saturday 9th May.
