The Intersection of Text and Image in Anglo-Saxon Literature:
What does image mean in Anglo-Saxon literature? How can we define the intersection of text and image without first defining this term? This session seeks papers that will shed light on the meaning of image in Old English texts. The topic is purposefully broad so as to invite multi-disciplinary perspectives. We welcome proposals from specialties including, but not limited to literary theory, medieval history, politics in Anglo-Saxon England, linguistics and philology, and eco-literature. By May 15, 2010, please submit abstracts of 250 to 300 words either to Elizabeth Canon, University of Wisconsin at La Crosse, at or Megan Salter, Georgia College and State University, at
