Call For Papers

Signum University Press is pleased to announce a call for papers on Philology for an
anthology in honor of Professor J. R. R. Tolkien, and edited by Dr. Carl Edlund
Anderson and Dr. Larry Swain. Philology may be understood as the study of people
through their language(s) and/or texts. Typically, such study focuses on the speech
communities of real, historical peoples. Considering the special status of J. R. R.
Tolkien as an ‘applied philologist’, who transformed the traditional tools of academic
philology for creative purposes, this volume likewise extends the notion of philology
to the study of imaginary peoples through their imaginary languages and/or texts. We
may also examine the work of their creators with the intention of highlighting how
philology transcends traditional circumscriptions to not only remain a potent
approach to understanding historical and present human communities but also
creative artists who work with notions of language and their creations.
We welcome proposals by experienced or emerging scholars, of all backgrounds, and
extend the friendliest invitation to those who come from traditionally
underrepresented groups. Interested contributors should submit a 500-word abstract,
in English, by July 31, 2023.
