Crossing Borders: Hybridity and Hegemony in Post-Conquest England

As of Sept. 1 (I'm still behind posting):

We are still soliciting submissions for the following session
sponsored by the International Long Twelfth Century Society:

"Crossing Borders: Hybridity and Hegemony in Post-Conquest England:
There are many kinds of borders being crossed in recent studies
regarding post-Conquest England: temporal, political, cultural,
gendered… to name but a few. This session proposes to explore new
ways of thinking about Anglo-Norman England by examining how writers
blurred (or confirmed) the boundaries of time and space, identity and
being, or thinking and writing. Papers of particular interest will
demonstrate continuity between the Anglo-Saxon or late medieval
periods and the long twelfth century. By shedding new light on a
historically undervalued period of medieval experience, this session
will be essential to promoting a more complete understanding of
England's literary history."

Deadline for submissions is, of course, Sept 15th to me at -- thank you!
