The Horn of Rohan

Tolkien in the Digital Age

Posted on June 22, 2011 by Edith L. Crowe

Call for Submissions:

A special issue of Beyond Bree  (newsletter of the Tolkien Special Interest Group of American Mensa) will be devoted to exploring the works of J.R.R. Tolkien in The Digital Age. This time frame includes the new movie magic of Peter Jackson, the success of Harry Potter, as well as thoughts and reflections about reading Tolkien on the new eReaders.

Related subjects about the current state of fantasy will also be considered. Echoing Marshall McLuhan, is there a message about Tolkien that can be gained from this new medium or will it change the Tolkien experience? How will Tolkien endure these new developments?
