The New England Saga Society is pleased to announce plans for a special issue of Studies in Medieval and Renaissance Teaching (SMART). This issue will address the subject of Teaching Old Norse Literature. We will consider proposals concerning any perspective on this subject, and are especially interested in essays offering innovative ideas for integrating Old Norse literature into the modern undergraduate curriculum.

Studies in Medieval and Renaissance Teaching is a journal of essays designed to assist teachers in communicating an understanding of the Middle Ages and Renaissance. SMART essays are scholarly and pedagogical, informative and practical. All papers are judged by at least two peer reviewers.

We invite short abstracts (250 words) from interested parties proposing articles of 3000-5000 words on all aspects of this topic.

We anticipate the following schedule:

Abstracts due: August 31, 2013
