First Journal Article: Imagination and Tolkien

The Hobbit After two years of half a dozen papers waiting for the interminably slow review process to crank, the International Journal of Play has got me through the entire process in just five months – giving me my first acceptance of a peer-reviewed journal paper (that didn’t start as a conference paper).

The paper is entitled “What are we playing with? Role-taking, role play and story-play with Tolkien’s legendarium” and will appear in the journal sometime early next year. My thanks to Pat Broadhead, whom I met at the fantastic Philosophy at Play conference, for inviting me to submit and for all her assistance throughout the always-gruelling review process.

Here is the Author Original Manuscript that was submitted to the journal; I will be able to share the Author Accepted Manuscript 18 months after publication:
