Course Description

Restricted enrollment; contact department for permission to register.

This course will develop fluency in reading the less-read Old English texts, and in using the scholarly grammars, dictionaries, and databases to construct arguments and develop a nuanced understanding of the more than a century's worth of international literary and linguistic labor that has been expended upon them. Students will additionally develop a short but substantial and original paper that ideally has the potential to be turned into a publishable article or note.
