Alicia Fox-Lenz

Alicia Fox-Lenz is an independent scholar interested in studying Tolkien through a Cultural Studies lens and expanding the mantle of mythopoeic literature to interactive narrative platforms. More specifically, her work examines the applicability of Tolkien to a modern audience through reception, adaptation, and juxtaposition to pop culture media, as well as contextualizing the Legend of Zelda franchise as a work of mythopoeia. She has been published in Critical Insights: The Hobbit, Something Has Gone Crack”: New Perspectives on J.R.R. Tolkien in the Great War, Mythopoeic Narrative in The Legend of Zelda, and is currently editing a collection tentatively titled I’m Going on an Adventure”: Seeking Tolkien’s Influence in Game Design and Culture.
