Final Call for these two sessions!  (and with apologies for cross-posting)

We have not finalized the panels, so last-minute abstracts are still welcome! Thanks!

The Anglo-Saxon Hagiography Society (ASHS) is once again sponsoring two sessions at the Kalamazoo International Congress in 2018. The panels for these sessions have not been prearranged, and we are still actively accepting abstracts for both sessions! We are looking for submissions on these broad topics:

(1) Anonymous Anglo-Saxon Saints’ Lives

(2) Gender in Anonymous Anglo-Saxon Prose Saints’ Lives

The ASHS sessions have by now become an established platform for sustained conversation about and exploration of anonymous hagiography, in both the vernacular and Latin, of Anglo-Saxon England. With last year’s congress, we have also begun a more focused conversation on aspects of gender specifically in anonymous prose saint’s lives and look forward to continuing that this year. We invite scholars at any stage in their career to share their work on anonymous hagiography.

Submit abstracts by September 15 to:
Robin Norris (RobinNorris AT cunet.carleton.ca)
Johanna Kramer (Kramerji AT missouri.edu)

Meanwhile, feel free to contact either of us with questions.

The co-organizers,
Robin Norris, Carleton University
Johanna Kramer, University of Missouri-Columbia
