Abstract

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.

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.
