A Secret Vice Seminar

Date & Time




In the Summer of 2016, the latest Tolkien work was revealed: the new edition of A Secret Vice, edited by Dr. Andrew Higgins and Dr. Dimitra Fimi. This lovely new edition of Tolkien’s classic essay contains several brand new discoveries about Tolkien’s linguistic work.

This October, hear more about A Secret Vice: Tolkien on Invented Languages, straight from the editors themselves! Dr. Higgins and Dr. Fimi will be giving live presentations on some of their discoveries, and then coming together for a live Q&A session at the end. Join us for this opportunity to hear from and interact with these great Tolkien scholars!


  • Sunday, October 9, 4:00 PM EDT: Dr. Andrew Higgins
  • Tuesday, October 18, 4:00 PM EDT: Dr. Dimitra Fimi
  • Tuesday, October 25, 4:00 PM EDT: Higgins and Fimi Q&A
