Mythmoot II: Back Again took place at the Conference Center at the Maritime Institute in Linthicum, Maryland on December 13-15, 2013. The program featured a special viewing of the second Hobbit film, The Desolation of Smaug, as well as guest speakers, musicians, artists, a fantastic banquet, and also fun and interactive sessions for fans and academics alike, as well as panel presentations on the fantasy genre.
Call for Papers
Mythmoot II sought proposals for 15-20 minute papers on Tolkien and other fantasy-related literature and media. First-time presenters were especially encouraged to submit proposals. All proposals relating to fantasy were considered; themes of particular interest included:
- The Hobbit– reflections on the book, its history, or adaptations in media, art or gaming;
- Beyond Middle-earth– Tolkien’s non-Middle-earth writings, including his children’s stories, scholarship, short stories and poetry;
- A Game of Games– analysis of fantasy gaming from pen-and-paper to MMORPGs;
- Through Silver Glass– the reworking of fantasy themes in TV and film.
