One of Oxford’s best-loved authors is J.R.R. Tolkien, whose work as Professor of Anglo-Saxon at the University of Oxford was deeply tied to his work as a fantasy writer. Stuart Lee (Member of the English Faculty and Merton College, University of Oxford) traces how Tolkien's Middle-earth and especially 'The Lord of the Rings' have been reimagined through a range of digital technologies, from games to films.

This talk was part of an event exploring the work of celebrated Oxford storytellers Lewis Carroll, J.R.R. Tolkien and Philip Pullman and how their stories have been reimagined using a range of digital media. Watch the full discussion here: https://youtu.be/aPKENNrUmfI.
