The New Voices sessions are intended for all scholars new to studying early medieval England, 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 what was known as the International Society of Anglo-Saxonists (ISAS) at the time of submission of these sessions (vote on name change pending), who determine the ultimate selection of papers through a process of anonymous peer review.
