The International Lawman's Brut society announces a roundtable discussion, "Lawman and the Word." Please submit abstracts for a brief (ten minute) discussion of a single word or phrase from the Brut. Papers may focus on the history of a specific word or term from the text, its significance to the poem as a whole, or on other issues. This session will build on work that has been done on word choice and on single words in the Brut, including "lawen," "freondcipe," and others.
