Old Saxon at Kalamazoo!

Wes þu hal,

For those of you attending this year’s International Congress on Medieval Studies in Kalamazoo, I would like to give a quick plug for the second annual “Studies in the Heliand” panel. The panel will take place on Thursday (May 11) at 3:30 in Valley III Stinson 306. The turnout for last year’s event was excellent, and I would love to keep building upon what I hope to be a yearly tradition. My old Baylor colleague David Eugene Clark of Suffolk County Community College will be presiding over four presentations:

“The Heliand and Theories of Germanic Intertextuality” – Paul Battles, Hanover College

“Christ, Commitatus, and Christology” – Larry J Swain, Bemidji State University

“Healing Power and the Disabled Body in the Heliand” – Perry Neil Harrison, Baylor University

“The One and the Other: Parables of Difference in the Old Saxon Heliand” – Kenneth C. Hawley, Lubbock Christian University

I’m looking forward to hearing the other papers on the panel, as well as meeting others interested in Old Saxon studies. Until then!

Cheers,

Perry
