Dear colleagues,



I am pleased to announce two sessions for next year’s international Congress in Kalamazoo sponsored by the University of Louisville’s Medieval and Renaissance Faculty Workshop:



1. Law and Legal Culture in Anglo-Saxon England

Recognizing the extent to which our understanding of early law has changed over the last century, the purpose of this session is to bring together scholars from a variety of disciplines to discuss new ways of understanding pre-Conquest legal culture. We invite papers that examine the many ways in which law was made, understood, practiced, promulgated, and transcribed in the Anglo-Saxon world. We are eager to receive submissions representing a variety of perspectives, methodologies, and disciplines. Possible topics include (but are not limited to): royal legislation, legal manuscripts, law in/and literature, legal procedure, charters and diplomatics, writs and wills, dispute resolution, theories of law and justice, perceptions of early law in later periods, law in/and art.



2. Archbishop Wulfstan and the Sermo Lupi ad Anglos

This session is dedicated to the career of Archbishop Wulfstan of York in commemoration of the upcoming millenary (more or less…) of his most famous composition, the Sermo Lupi ad Anglos. We invite papers covering all aspects of Archbishop Wulfstan\'s career as \"homilist and statesman,\" to borrow Dorothy Whitelock\'s famous formulation. We are eager to receive submissions representing a variety of perspectives, methodologies, and disciplines. We welcome traditional philological and historicist approaches, as well as those informed by modern critical theory. Archbishop Wulfstan is perhaps the most important and influential political thinker of the later Anglo-Saxon period, and this session offers a valuable opportunity to reassess his legacy.



Abstracts can be sent via post or e-mail (preferably the latter) to:
