Book Cover
A Handbook of Anglo-Saxon Studies

This collection of new and original essays explores the relationship between contemporary critical theory and the study of Anglo-Saxon England. Core terminology familiar from critical theory, such as “ethnicity”, “gender”, and “agency”, provides a thematic structure in which fresh and revealing perspectives on Anglo-Saxon England come to light. Each essay takes one of these terms as its starting point, offering a brief overview of the term and its use in Anglo-Saxon studies before deploying it as a critical matrix for its own investigation of the Anglo-Saxon period. The collection also explores the question of what contribution Anglo-Saxonists can make to critical theory, and provides new directions for the future of the field.
