Read all about it in a special forum at The Heroic Age. You will see some familiar names.
EDIT by Eileen [7/1 @ 6:30 pm] Oh, SNAP! Jeffrey beat me to mentioning the special forum, but allow me to also direct your attention, in that same issue, to the first entry in what will be a regular Heroic Age feature, "babelisms," and the first essay to be featured in that column [edited by me], Daniel Murtaugh's "Absent Beowulf." Over and out.
EDIT by JJC [7/2 @ 6:30 am in a more soothing color than Eileen's glaring red of last night] Also don't miss Eileen's excellent essay "Queer Times, Queer Bodies and the Erotics of a Nomadic Anglo-Saxon Studies" here. Note too that the Kzoo 2009 CFP is out, and Eileen is all over it. Who is this Eileen person and why is she everywhere? Does she possess clones? Ought we to do something about her sudden omnipresence? She's the Paul Newman of medieval studies -- just as you can't walk through a supermarket without his leering head confronting you from the labels of bottles of salad dressing, microwave popcorn boxes, jars of pasta sauce, and cans of soup, so Eileen Joy is ubiquitous on every brand of medieval-related scholarship. Is this saturation somehow related to the apocalypse?
