Anglo-Saxon Riddles
CFPIMC Leeds 2-5 July 2018
Sponsored by The Riddle Ages: An Anglo-Saxon Riddle Blog

After three 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, as are papers on this year's conference theme, 'Memory'.

If you would like to be considered for these sessions, please email an abstract of no more than 300 words, as well as your affiliation and contact details, to Megan Cavell ( and Jennifer Neville ( by 18 September 2017.
