Session IV: Aglæca: What's in a Word?

The term aglæca has received more than its share of critical attention, but there is still some disagreement on what it means in its many manifestations. In Christ and Satan, Guthalc, Juliana, The Phoenix, and The Whale its context in explicitly religious, but this is not necessarily the case in Beowulf (where it occurs most often). Because the word refers to Sigemund, Beowulf, Grendel, Grendel's mother, and the dragon, understanding its denotation and its connotation(s) has presented scholars with a number of difficulties.

Inter-Material Affections: Intimacy and Ecology in the 19th Century
A Proposed Panel for C19: The Society of Nineteenth-Century Americanists

Papers exploring how Americans in the nineteenth century conceived ecology as a form of intimacy will be considered for a proposed panel for the 2012 C19 conference. Papers should explore how 19th-century conceptions of ecology aided two overlapping projects: (1) expanding possibilities for intra-human intimacies and (2) migrating intimacy beyond the interpersonal to what we might call the inter-material.

Possible areas for focus might include, but are by no means limited to:
