Anglo-Saxon Riddles
CFP, IMC Leeds 3-6 July 2017
Sponsored by The Riddle Ages: An Anglo-Saxon Riddle Blog

After two successful years, we are again seeking papers for sessions on the
Old English and Anglo-Latin riddles that allowed writers to explore, order
and problematize the early medieval world. These sessions will bring
together papers engaging with a wide range of thematic interests and
methodological frameworks, including but not limited to: diction, style,
sources, solutions, theoretical approaches, and cultural studies. Papers
that compare Anglo-Saxon riddles with works in other medieval languages are
also welcome.

If you would like to be considered for these sessions, please email an
abstract of no more than 300 words, as well as details of your affiliation
and contact address, to Megan Cavell ( and Jennifer
Neville ( by 21 September 2016.
