The Anglo-Saxon Studies Colloquium

A Forum for Scholars of Early Medieval England

The Anglo-Saxon Studies Colloquium aims to foster intellectual exchange among faculty and graduate students whose interests embrace the language, literature, and culture of early medieval England. Currently based in Columbia, New York University, the University of Rhode Island, Rutgers, the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, UC Berkeley, and King's College London, the Colloquium seeks to expand the resources available to Anglo-Saxonists from these universities and other institutions in the area, and also to create a welcoming intellectual community for anyone who is interested in Anglo-Saxon studies.

“Medieval Poetics: New Approaches to Poetic Form and Cultural Practice" at Rutgers.

Emily Thornbury will be presenting some of her exciting research on ornament, and her lecture will be followed by a response from Erik Wade, a Lane Cooper Fellow at Rutgers, who is currently completing a dissertation, “Significant Others: Gender, Race, and English Identity in Early Medieval English Eroticism.”

In addition, there will be lectures by Arthur Bahr (MIT), Eleanor Johnson (Columbia), Ingrid Nelson (Amherst), and much good conversation and food. Rutgers is an easy (50-minute) train ride from Manhattan (Penn Station via NJ Transit, New England Corridor line), and once you get off at the New Brunswick station, it is less than a ten minute walk to the English Department in Murray Hall. All are welcome!

This event is co-sponsored by the Rutgers British Studies Center, the Anglo-Saxon Studies Colloquium (ASSC), and the Rutgers’ Program in Medieval Studies.
