It isn’t what we wanted. It is unfortunately what we have. Or don’t have.
The Conference On Middle earth 2015 kept losing presenters to financial issues, like department budget cuts and the like. It’s hard to have a conference without enough presenters. We lost two more just this week.
So here we are, less than a month away, and we have to cancel.
COMe 2015 will hang on to your eddresses. When the economy stabilizes, or even improves, we’ll see what we can do about resurrecting the conference.
After all, there were 40 years between the 2nd Conference on Middle earth in 1971 and the 3rd Conference On Middle earth in 2011.
I was very much looking forward to meeting you.
Conference On Middle earth 20??
