Abstract

This session is designed to provide a forum for advanced graduate students and junior faculty to present the fruits of their research on any aspect of Anglo-Saxon Studies. All submissions are reviewed by members of the ISAS Advisory Board, who determine the ultimate selection of abstracts. All of the papers in this particular session deal in some way with the intersections among different traditions, be they linguistic, generic, textual, or religious.
