English I (Medieval) Regular Session at 2014 SAMLA Conference (Atlanta)
Sustainability is the theme of this year's SAMLA conference; however, it is a concept that would have been unknown in the Anglo-Saxon Age, at least as we now define and use the term. But certainly the preservation of learning, the care, copying and circulation of manuscripts, and the conservation and recirculation of material culture (including relics) were persistent and continuous activities during this period. This session invites papers that deal with any of these topics or any other aspect of the Anglo-Saxon period.
