at the Radio City LotR concert, there was a related exhibit from the Marquette archives. Gramma, some others, and I visited it. Amazing stuff.

The virtual versions are still available and free.

And the exhibit itself is open the whole run.

Reminder: 3 free online lectures (long post) [In reply to] Can't Post

Please join us for the J.R.R. Tolkien scholars lecture series!About this event
The Haggerty Museum of Art and Raynor Memorial Libraries at Marquette University are pleased to present a lecture series in conjunction with the collaborative exhibition J.R.R. Tolkien: The Art of the Manuscript that will feature the original manuscripts created by J.R.R. Tolkien for his literary classics The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and other works.
ē Thursday, September 22, 2022, 5 p.m.: Carl Hostetter will present Editing the Tolkienian Manuscript
IMPORTANT UPDATE: Due to unforeseen circumstances, Carl Hostetter is unable to join us in person to deliver Editing the Tolkienian Manuscript. The lecture will instead be presented live via Zoom at the previously scheduled time: 5 p.m. Central Time on Thursday, September 22. If you hold in-person tickets and wish to join the lecture via Zoom, please re-register here to receive the link. The lecture will be broadcast live at the Haggerty Museum of Art. Those who purchased exhibition tickets for that evening and wish to receive a refund may contact mary.dornfeld@marquette.edu.
Carl Hostetter is a computer scientist at NASA who has earned a reputation as one of the leading experts on J.R.R. Tolkienís invented languages. He is a key member of the Elvish Linguistic Fellowship, an elite group of four Tolkien scholars whom the Tolkien Estate has entrusted with special access to the authorís unpublished linguistic manuscripts. These linguists have published extensively on Tolkienís invented languages, including in Vinyar Tengwar, a peer-reviewed journal that Hostetter edits.
Hostetter is one of the most experienced students of Tolkienís manuscripts. His ability to read and interpret Tolkienís notoriously difficult handwriting is second to none. Christopher Tolkien (1924-2020) entrusted Hostetter with editing his fatherís last volume of published writings, released in 2021 under the title, The Nature of Middle-earth. Hostetterís work is highly regarded by Tolkien scholars. His volume Tolkienís Legendariumóco-edited with Verlyn Fliegeróis considered one of the best collections of essays on the history of Tolkienís secondary world.

ē Thursday, October 13, 2022, 5 p.m.: Holly Ordway will present Tolkienís Faith and the Foundations of Middle-earth
Holly Ordway is a rising star among Tolkien scholars. Her 2021 book Tolkienís Modern Reading is a tour de force destined to become a classic in Tolkien studies. Ordway demonstrated that Tolkien, usually pigeonholed as a medievalist, was remarkably well-read in modern literature. Her work shows how many modern works affected Tolkienís creative output. Currently on faculty at Houston Baptist University, Ordway has taught English at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill and MiraCosta College. She specializes in J.R.R. Tolkien and, more generally, in mythopoeic literature. Ordwayís current research project is a book-length treatment of Tolkienís Catholicism, fitting for a Catholic, Jesuit university such as Marquette.

ē Thursday, November 17, 2022, 5 p.m.: John Garth will present Whispering leaves: How Tolkienís manuscripts reveal the secrets of his creativity
Trained as a journalist, John Garth has gained an international reputation as a leading writer about J.R.R. Tolkien and a popular commentator on Tolkienís works and life. His published works include the recent The Worlds of J.R.R. Tolkien (2020). His earlier masterpiece, Tolkien and the Great War (2003), is universally acknowledged as a classic in the field of Tolkien Studies. Garth, who has made a special study of Tolkienís manuscripts, will focus his lecture on a manuscript that is part of Marquetteís collection and has never previously been exhibited or published. He will demonstrate his renowned historical research skills by analyzing the manuscript and using it to tease out insights about Tolkienís experiences during the Second World War.The lectures will be held at the Haggerty Museum of Art and will have time for Q&A. All lectures will be recorded for audiences that wish to view them virtually.
