Description

Anglo-Saxon England and the Celtic World

This session seeks papers that take a comparative approach in considering the rich and mutually influential relationship between Anglo-Saxon England and any of its Celtic neighbors in the British Isles during the early medieval period. Appealing to the interdisciplinary spirit of Kalamazoo, we are interested in papers that explore the long and simultaneous histories of both intellectual/cultural exchange and military conflict between Saxons, Britons, Irish and Picts during the Anglo-Saxon period. From Irish influence on the early Anglo-Saxon church, to the role of Welsh kingdoms in King Alfred's politics, to literary and scribal exchanges across borders throughout the period, this session welcomes papers that place the relationship between Anglo-Saxon England and any of the Celtic peoples surrounding it in a trans-national, cross-cultural context. Papers might consider issues of ethnicity, identity, colonialism, and nationality; explore relationships of literary and textual exchange and influence; or simply consider moments of historical interaction between peoples, within any discipline of Anglo-Saxon or Celtic Studies.
