Event description

Description

Dr Alaric Hall, Lecturer in Medieval English Literature, explores Tolkien's scholarship and friendships during his time at the University of Leeds.

Leeds University Library's Special Collections gives a unique insight into Tolkien's teaching career at the University.

Discover how the scholarship and friendships that Tolkien formed while at Leeds University informed his creative writing - a story that involves intercontinental migration, class prejudices, and the struggles of women to be accepted as scholars.
