Description

Allegations of misogyny and sexual harassment against prominent members of our field in January 2016 caused a firestorm on social media and came as a shock to many Anglo-Saxonists. Under the leadership of ISAS and the Old English Division of the MLA, as well as grassroots efforts, such as a new mentoring program for Anglo-Saxonists, by Kalamazoo 2016 what had been a demoralizing time has been transformed into a watershed moment. Our positive, productive contribution to this ongoing conversation has been to propose a new volume of essays that takes feminist approaches to Anglo-Saxon culture, with both of those terms as broadly defined as possible. This session creates a space for feminist ideas to be heard and explored.
