SoCal Moot 2024 Registration

May 4, 2024 • Carlsbad, CA
Signum University and the Mythgard Institute invite you to join us in Carlsbad, CA, on Saturday, May 4, 2024, for SoCal Moot. This year, our theme is "A New Hope: Estel and Optimism in Speculative Fiction".

The worlds of speculative fiction often serve as a mirror reflecting the human condition, offering a canvas for exploring profound themes. SoCal Moot invites you to explore the theme of Hope, showcasing its adaptive nature across diverse storytelling landscapes.

Estel, a term rooted in the language of J.R.R. Tolkien, embodies a concept of hope, trust, and belief in a brighter future. SoCal Moot will not only focus on Tolkien's concept of providential Hope but also extend to varied speculative fiction narratives. By examining the portrayal of Hope through many lenses, we seek to provoke thoughtful reflections on Hope’s enduring power of optimism and its profound impact on both fictional worlds and our reality.

Come with us and embark on a thought-provoking journey through the realms of fiction, illuminating the ever-relevant messages of hope and optimism, and their transformative impact on the human spirit.
