Second year undergraduate unit â€˜The Anglo-Saxon Worldâ€™ coordinated by G.J. Tulloch at Flinders University. Although the unit focuses on Anglo-Saxon literature of the eighth to eleventh centuries, including an introduction to the Old English language, an aspect of medievalism is apparent by the inclusion of J.R.R. Tolkienâ€™s â€˜The Hobbitâ€™ on the reading list, along with selections from some of his other works. A number of Tolkienâ€™s works present a world similar to that of Anglo-Saxon England.
