Dr Dimitra FimiWelcome to Dimitra Fimi's personal website.Dr Fimi teaches at Cardiff University.She teaches and researches on:
Cardiff University is offering an on-line course taught in 10 weekly units by Dr Dimitra Fimi.The course will run three times during the 2008-2009 academic year, starting on 6 October 2008, 19 January 2009 and 27 April 2009 respectively.The students will be able to explore Tolkien's Middle-earth from their home, in their own time.They will examine the vast mythology behind The Lord of the Rings and gain a thorough knowledge of Tolkien's fiction and its creation by focusing on The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, The Silmarillion and The Children of Húrin.The course will focus on the northern European mythologies that inspired Tolkien's Middle-earth, especially the creative uses of his sources in Old Norse mythology, Celtic myths and legends Classical mythology, Shakespeare and the literary tradition.The students of this online course will also learn about Tolkien's 'invented languages', their origins and sources, and they will examine Tolkien's work in its historical context through intellectual history, focusing on the 'races' and cultures of Middle-earth.The students will also have the opportunity to participate in a lively Discussion Board moderated by Dr Fimi and they will have full access to Cardiff University's electronic resources (including such electronic journals as Tolkien Studies and Mythlore and a great number of e-book and reference collections).For those students who are already enrolled in academic programmes, there is the option of doing this course for credits to be used towards their Higher Education Qualifications.To find out more please look at Online Courses under Teaching.
Book Cover of Tolkien, Race and Cultural History is now onlineThe dust jacket for Dr Fimi's forthcoming book Tolkien, Race and Cultural History is now online on the Palgrave Macmillan website.The photo figuring on the book cover was designed by the author by manipulating a photograph she took recently of Moseley Bog.This "kaleidoscopic" view of Moseley Bog, one of young Tolkien's favourite playgrounds close to Sarehole Mill in Moseley, Birmingham, was chosen as an appropriate theme for the book cover as Tolkien often acknowledged this landscape as a source of inspiration and also he was fond of drawing kaleidoscopic heraldic designs and emblems for the Elves and Men of the First Age (see especially examples published in Picture by J.R.R. Tolkien).For more information on the book click on Publications.
Dr Fimi has contributed the paper: "Material Culture and Materiality in Middle-earth: Tolkien and Archaeology".
In the same volume Dr Fimi has reviewed Ross Smith's book Inside Language: Linguistic and Aesthetic Theory in Tolkien (see under Publications).
