"Latinity and Identity in Anglo-Saxon England (1-2)"

Call for Papers: 46th International Congress on Medieval Studies

"Latinity and Identity in Anglo-Saxon England (1-2)"

Pre-Conquest Anglo-Latinity was a complex phenomenon: the choice to write
in Latin was itself significant for Germanic-speaking peoples, while
various modes, styles, topics and genres held meanings of their own which
today's scholarship is still working to understand. We invite proposals on
one important aspect of those meanings: the intersection of identity
(personal, national, religious, or other) with the Latin literature of
Anglo-Saxon England.

Abstracts for 20 minute papers, together with a participant information
sheet (available at, should
be directed by September 15 either by email to, or
by post to
