Join Corey Olsen, the Tolkien Professor, on a four-week, eight-class journey through The Two Towers. In our discussions, we work our way through the book a few chapters at a time, paying special attention to the mythic elements in Tolkien’s story. The class is open to everyone, and recordings will be posted afterwards.
Student Driven Learning
This summer, Mythgard launched a new program, the Mythgard Academy, through which we aim to make in-depth discussion of people’s favorite works of fantasy and science fiction literature free and open to everyone. The Mythgard Academy program features live discussions with Mythgard Institute faculty to which all are invited, free of charge. Recordings of our sessions are freely available after class, and we let our supporters decide what books we read.
In order to make Mythgard Academy classes numerous, diverse, and free to everyone, we need your support! Organizing, hosting, and running courses takes a lot of resources and a dedicated team of people, and we want the Mythgard Academy courses to be something that we can offer consistently for months and years to come. To make this a reality, we partnered with crowdfunding giant, Indiegogo, allowing student fans to back the courses of their choice. Learn more about the campaign:
