Old Saxon at Kalamazoo 2018!

Wes þu hal,

I would like to invite those who are traveling to this year’s International Congress on Medieval Studies to attend the third annual “Studies in the Heliand” panel. The event will take place on Thursday, May 10 at 10:00 AM in Schneider 1135. This year’s panel features three presenters:

“‘The Traveler Recognizes His Goal’: A Traditional Theme in Old English and Old Saxon Poetry” – Paul Battles, Hanover College

“Translating Nazareth for the North Sea: Poetic License and Emotional Language in the Heliand” – Michael G. Johnson, University of Dallas

“The Name ‘Jesus’ in the Old Saxon Heliand” – Perry Neil Harrison, Baylor University

The previous two years have featured some excellent papers, and this year promises to be no different. I am looking forward to hearing some high-quality research and chatting with others who are interested in Old Saxon studies!
