International Lawman's Brut Society

Since its publication in 1847 by Sir Frederic Madden, Lawman's Brut has challenged scholars with the question of genre, as various studies have tried to categorize it as a "chronicle," "epic," "romance" or as some other form of literature. Recent studies have also noted Lawman's blending of the features of different poetic and prose genres. Seeking to further this debate, this session asks for proposals that examine issues of genre in the Brut. It encourages papers that take on questions of how best to categorize Lawman's work and proposals that examine his use of the various genres and sub-genres available to him, including for example hagiography and the homily.
