Wes þu hal,
This week is the International Congress on Medieval Studies, and “Old Saxon at Kalamazoo” has two excellent sessions lined up. If you are attending the conference, I would certainly recommend making the time for them!
First, I will be presiding over our annual “Studies in the Heliand” research panel:
Studies in the Heliand
Thursday, May 12, 5:00 PM EDT
“The Traditional Theme of ‘Exile’ in the Old Saxon Heliand” – Paul Battles, Hanover College
“Baptizing Uurd in the Heliand.” – David G. Pedersen, College of the Ozarks
In addition to the research panel, this year we are delighted to hold a roundtable centered around the theme of “Teaching the Heliand.” The table is packed with some amazing participants, and I am looking forward to sharing in conversation with them.
Teaching the Old Saxon Heliand (A Roundtable)
