ARC - Early Middle English


Early Middle English is the first scholarly journal devoted to a vital period of linguistic change, literary experimentation, and multilingual interaction in England. It takes a wide view of its field: not only texts written in Early Middle English but also the historical and global situation of the literature of England and its production ca. 1100-1350. Each issue of EME includes both traditional essays and “Pece & Oþer” contributions (see below).

EME builds on the Making Early Middle English conference, and it promotes scholarship in: Early Middle English language and literature; the multicultural, international, and multilingual contexts of Early Middle English (including studies that make explicit how such research affects modern understanding of global politics and cultures); British manuscript studies ca. 1100-1350; the backgrounds, scholarly history, and afterlives of Early Middle English; theoretical interventions in areas such as gender, sexuality, race, disability, new materialism, ecocriticism, and interdisciplinary analysis; and resource creation or field definition (e.g., discussion of new digital resources, new editions, or review essays).
