Multilingual Early Middle English
This panel is interested in papers that reimagine the boundaries of Early Middle English in a multilingual milieu. We are interested in papers that think about multilingualism on the page, multilingual texts in one manuscript, or how multilingualism can make Early Middle English an interesting expertimental zone for code-switching and mixed language. We are also interested in how other media (music, visual, etc.) may also help reimagine multilingualism and the production of early Middle English.

Given the multifaceted nature of English departments, the aim of this conference is to explore a cross-disciplinary conversation about ideologies and ideas. Because disciplines are largely characterized by their theoretical movements or opposition to such movements, submissions to this conference are encouraged to focus on suffixes. For instance, how do the suffixes of academia play a role in specific fields of study? How might -isms, -ologies, and -istics reinforce the sometimes disparate conversations among or within disciplines? How can they build connections between disciplines?
