And Once More about the Geography of Middle-Earth

About a month ago I received a surprising invitation to give a lecture on Limmud Moscow 2018 conference about… the geography and cartography of J. R. R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth 😉  So this Saturday, from 11:30 to 12:30 PM, I’ll be talking about Tolkien’s own maps, and about how well the inhabitants of Middle-earth knew the geography of their own world, and how researchers and artists tried to imagine the Middle-earth as a whole (not only the Western Lands, a well-known map of which can be found almost in every publication of The Lord of the Rings), and finally, how the geography of the East and the South of Middle-earth could ‘really’ look like, according to available texts.  Hope it’ll be interesting 🙂
