General description

Come and get excited about Old English! In this reading circle we will deepen our knowledge of Old English grammar and familiarize ourselves with some of the period’s core texts. We will initially be looking at some of the basic vocabulary and grammatical paradigms, and later on exploring texts like the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle and Battle of Maldon, both linguistically and from a discourse analytical/literary perspective. The reading circle meets every week (starting the week of Monday 11.1) except the mid-term week for 12 weeks (7+5). Since the module is evaluated on an accepted/fail basis, only two absences are allowed. During the module each participant is also required to make a 5-10 minute presentation on one of the texts read. Some preliminary knowledge of Old English might be useful for the class (for example The Story of English). Who knows but we might be having tea and coffee some week!
