The New Voices sessions are intended for all scholars new to the field of Anglo-Saxon studies, including research students, newly-appointed lecturers and anyone who has only recently begun to work in this area. They provide an interdisciplinary perspective and showcase new work in the field. All submissions are reviewed by the Advisory Board members of the International Society of Anglo-Saxonists (ISAS), who determine the ultimate selection of papers through a process of blind peer review.
