The Edge of Human Experience: Blake and Tolkien’s Art


The Edge of Human Experience: Blake and Tolkien’s Art | Online Event


13/10/2023 19:30-20:30

Have you ever looked at a piece of visual art by J.R.R. Tolkien and thought ‘that looks a bit like Blake’?

In this online talk, PhD student Annise Rogers will examine why this might be so, even though, as far as we are aware, Tolkien never cited Blake as an influence.

Romantic connections, even within Blakean study, have tended to be based on texts. This is due, in part, to the slippery nature of the term ‘Romanticism’, a term difficult to define in literature, and even harder in visual art.

William Blake has always been an immensely important figure in the history of visual art, influencing artists and artistic movements such as the Pre-Raphaelites, William Morris, and Art Nouveau. J.R.R. Tolkien is commonly regarded as one of the forefathers of contemporary fantasy fiction. But what connects these two artists, and how are they visually connected?

It has become a major international conference where scholars from all five continents gather regularly to exchange research, views, and insights. In 2020, the conference was initially planned to be held in Lisbon, Portugal, in July, but has been rescheduled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Crossroads in Cultural Studies 2022 is co-organised by the Association for Cultural Studies (ACS) and the University of Lisbon Centre for English Studies (CEAUL/ULICES), at the School of Arts and Humanities of the University of Lisbon. It is the first online installment of the conference.

We welcome participants whose proposals have been accepted for the 2020 conference as well as non-presenting attendees.
