From Dr. Dimitra Fimi to Wellinghall

Please let me introduce myself. My name is Dimitra Fimi and I am teaching and researching Tolkien's fiction at Cardiff University, Wales, UK.

I write with regard to my online course on Tolkien, which I believe will be of interest to the members of Wellinghall. The course is entitled "Exploring Tolkien: There and Back Again", it is taught exclusively online in 10 weekly units and can be taken by students and adult learners all over the world. It is a revised and expanded version of my earlier course "The Foundations of Middle-earth: Myth, Language and Ideology in J. R .R. Tolkien’s Literature" (which ran in the academic year 2005-2006). The course has already run once this academic year, and will run on two more occasions, starting on 12 February 2007 and 23 April 2007 respectively. Enrolments are now open for both courses.

More detailed information about the course can be found on this website:

Some Frequently Asked Questions about the course are answered here:

The course covers a great range of topics on Tolkien’s sources in myth and contemporary intellectual history. A detailed overview of the 10 Units of the course can be found here:

I would be very grateful if you would pass this information to the members of the Toronto Tolkien Society that might be interested.

Thank you in advance for considering my request.
Best Wishes for a Happy and Creative New Year,
Dr. Dimitra Fimi

I've taken this course with Dimitra and it's fantastic! The price for us Canadians wasn't bad at all either! I plan to take it again ... for fun. YES, I am that much of a geek. :)
