CFP: Abandonment and Exile in Anglo-Saxon Prose, a special session at
the 41st International Congress on Medieval Studies, Kalamazoo MI

Old English literature is rich in poetry that explores solitude, from
the Wife's Lament to the Seafarer. But what about the prose?

This session seeks to explore the legal, literary, social, and
theological functions of abandonment and exile in that prose. Papers
that address law codes, penitentials, homilies, hagiography, and
other prose Anglo-Saxon texts are encouraged.
