Too often, students of medieval English literature unnecessarily categorize Old and Middle English as completely disconnected, highlighting Beowulf and Chaucer as the exemplary markers, with little in between. This panel seeks instead to explore moments of interaction across the spectrum of earlier and later medieval English literature. Examples may include parallel literary forms, English identities, linguistic developments, and the ways that they interact with historical, religious, and social frameworks.

Send paper abstracts up to 300 words with name, affiliation, and contact information to Pamela Longo (pamela.longo@uconn.edu) or Brandon Hawk (brandon.hawk@uconn.edu) by 30 Sept. 2011.
