It is my very great pleasure to announce the CFP for "Early English Law: A
Centenary Conference on Die Gesetze der Angelsachsen of Felix Liebermann
(1903 - 1916)," which will be held 16-17 July, 2008, at the Institute for
Historical Research in London. Proposals of around 300 words are invited
on the areas of Historiography (especially, but not exclusively, relating
to Liebermann), Evidence (manuscripts and archeological data), Philology,
Law, and Editing. Within each of these areas, we invite proposals that
consider antiquarian interest in early laws, general historiography on the
laws to the present, assessments of Liebermann's accomplishment, the
problems with his edition, new editing work, discovery of new manuscripts
or reinterpretations of known manuscripts, construction and use of
individual manuscripts, legal terminology (Old English, Latin, or early
Anglo-Norman), considerations of individual laws, codes in context, and
comparative work on England and its neighbors.

All sessions will be plenary, and the organizers invite proposals for
panels as well as for individual papers. The conference is being organized
by Stefan Jurasinski (SUNY-Brockport), Bruce O'Brien (Mary Washington),
Lisi Oliver (LSU, and Andrew Rabin (University of Louisville). Proposals
should be sent to Bruce O'Brien at the Institute of Historical Research by
31 October 2007 (email: bobrien_at_umw.edu). The full CFP may be found at
