CFP: Old English (2/1/06; SAMLA, 11/9/06-11/12/06)
Call for papers
Old English session I and II
The meeting of The South Atlantic Modern Language Association
November 9-12, 2006
Charlotte, North Carolina
Session I: "Lit. & Lang."
One cannot fully appreciate Old English (Anglo-Saxon) literature without
an appreciation of Old English itself. This session invites papers that
explore how interpretations of the language shape our interpretation of
the literature, and vice-versa. Papers discussing issues related to the
teaching of Old English are also encouraged.
Session II: Vision and Text
The object/artifact is often separated from the constructed text. Papers
are invited that explore this phenomenon-the effects of this separation,
the efforts to re-combine object and text, or other.
One-page abstracts for papers on either topic should be sent to Dr.
