OzMoot 2024 Registration

January 26–28, 2024 • Sydney, NSW, Australia
Signum University and the Mythgard Institute in partnership with the Tolkien Society and Hern Ennorath invite you to join us in Sydney, Friday-Sunday, January 26-28, for our Second annual OzMoot. Our theme this year is "Above All Shadows: Tolkien and Uncertain Futures".

J.R.R. Tolkien’s legendarium evolved over his lifetime, during which he simultaneously enjoyed the happiness and fulfillment brought by his family, career, and love while enduring the darker challenges of being an orphan, traumatic war service, and the loss of his close friends. His stories resonate with us because of Tolkien’s implicit message that life offers ‘hope without guarantees’. We can never know how things will turn out, nor what the future will hold. However, Tolkien repeatedly compels us to presume that despair is a mistake in the face of the unknown, from Sam on the Stairs of Cirith Ungol to Húrin at the Fens of Serech, from Aragorn’s dilemma at Parth Galen to Turin’s lifetime struggles.

We are seeking creative presentations, academic papers, and interactive workshops and activities around our theme and will accept proposals from both online and local attendees.
