Old English Reading Group

Activity: OtherPublic engagement, outreach and knowledge exchange - Other


An informal group, consisting of current, previous, and prospective students as well as visiting scholars, which meets weekly during term times to discuss all aspects of Old English literature. As meetings are attended by absolute beginners as well as well established scholars, the level and type of discussion vary widely from basic pronunciation to translation to debates over scholarship. These discussions sometimes lead to further research projects--presentations to the group, sessions at conferences, and even a one-day conference.
