I. LAW AND LEGAL CULTURE IN ANGLO-SAXON ENGLAND

> I. LAW AND LEGAL CULTURE IN ANGLO-SAXON ENGLAND
> Recognizing the extent to which the study of early law has changed over
> the last century, this session looks to bring together scholars from a
variety of disciplines to discuss new ways of understanding
> pre-Conquest
> legal culture. As we have in the past, this year also 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, and law in/and art.

> II. ARCHBISHOP WULFSTAN AND THE SERMO LUPI AD ANGLOS
> This session is being organized to mark the approaching 1000th
> anniversary (in 2014) of Archbishop Wulfstan's most famous
> composition,
> the Sermo lupi ad Anglos. As recent scholarship has revealed the scope
> of Wulfstan's activities as prelate, homilist, legislator, and royal
councilor, scholars have come to understand the Sermo lupi, not as an
isolated composition, but as part of a larger attempt to reshape England
> into a "Holy Society." For this session, we seek proposals examining
all aspects of the Sermo lupi itself, its place in the Wulfstanian
canon, as well as its influence of Anglo-Saxon culture generally.
