Call for papers


Old English session I and II

The meeting of The South Atlantic Modern Language Association

November 9-12, 2006

Charlotte, North Carolina


Session I: "Lit. & Lang."

One cannot fully appreciate Old English (Anglo-Saxon) literature without
an appreciation of Old English itself. This session invites papers that
explore how interpretations of the language shape our interpretation of
the literature, and vice-versa. Papers discussing issues related to the
teaching of Old English are also encouraged.


Session II: Vision and Text

The object/artifact is often separated from the constructed text. Papers
are invited that explore this phenomenon-the effects of this separation,
the efforts to re-combine object and text, or other.


One-page abstracts for papers on either topic should be sent to Dr.
Alexander M. Bruce, Dept. of English, Florida Southern College, 111 Lake
Hollingsworth Drive, Lakeland, FL 33801. E-mail preferred: Deadline: February 1, 2006; participants will be
notified by Feb. 15.


Participants must be registered members of SAMLA by the summer before
the conference.
