Description

As medievalists find themselves in a wide variety of institutions and positions, scholars, teachers, and students of Old English are learning and working in the field in numerous non-­traditional, experimental, and creative forms. Teachers of History of the English Language at regional campuses are building in units on early English dialects and orthographic standardization. At small inner city colleges, researchers examine Bede, Nennius, and Gildas for formations of early medieval ethnicity and identity. Graduate students at major research institutions test out new methodologies and cutting edge theoretical approaches. Yet many may find that they are the sole medievalist in their departments, or even on campus. How can we, as a discipline, help to foster intellectual networks that keep us connected and energized despite institutional isolation? The Old English Forum of the MLA seeks to develop, extend, and strengthen networks of mentorship, collaboration, and collegial inclusivity.
