Special session for ICMS Kalamazoo 2024

Delivery Mode: Virtual (fully online)

This online session is devoted to English literature and its production ca. 1100-1350 and takes a wide view of this lively period of
literary experimentation. With a focus on the contexts and era of ME, the organizer especially welcomes papers on multilingual
interactions (e.g., of Englishes, Welsh, Hebrew, French, etc); contexts not traditionally part of early Middle English studies (e.g.,
Anglo-Jewish literature and history); or interdisciplinary perspectives (e.g., medical texts, scholastic contexts, or linguistics).
Participants will have the opportunity to publish their papers in the journal Early Middle English (https://muse.jhu.edu/journal/750), and ECRs and international scholars are especially encouraged to submit.

Deadline for New Submissions: Friday, September 15, 2023


You may contact the organizer directly (via email) or submit abstracts through the ICMS Call for Papers portal: https://icms.confex.com/icms/2024/cfp.cgi (under special sessions).
