Old Saxon at Kalamazoo 2022!

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)
Thursday, May 12, 7:00 PM EDT

Participants: David M. Whitford, Baylor Univ.; Marc Pierce, Univ. of Texas – Austin; Collin Brown, Old Dominion Univ.; David Eugene Clark, Suffolk County Community College; Perry Neil Harrison, Fort Hays State Univ.; Kenneth C. Hawley, Lubbock Christian Univ.; Rick McDonald, Utah Valley Univ.
