A printed edition of this Special Issue is available here.
I am writing to invite you to contribute to a collection of papers on “Old English Poetry and its Legacy.”
John D. Niles, Professor of Humanities Emeritus at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, and Professor of English Emeritus at the University of California, Berkeley, has long been a major voice in Old English studies. This special issue of the international, peer-reviewed, open-access journal Humanities (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/humanities), together with a resultant book, will celebrate his achievements while promoting innovative work in the field.
The collection will focus on the legacy of Old English poetry broadly conceived and will include, for example, studies of particular poems, themes, or verse passages; of the translation or reception history of particular texts; of linguistic features of the poetry and their subsequent influence; of current historical and archaeological studies and how they illuminate the poetry or vice versa; of Old English poetry’s influence on various fields such as music or art; and of how an understanding of Old English prose or medieval Latin literature enriches appreciation of the poetry.
The submission deadline is 31 December 2021. Article processing charges for open access are explained at https://www.mdpi.com/apc; some subvention of costs may be available.
If you have other ideas for a paper that fits under the broad rubric “Old English Poetry and its Legacy,” please let me know. I hope that you will join me in honoring Professor Niles in a collection that will showcase leading research being done in Old English studies at the present time.
