      Guest Editor: Andrew Rabin, University of Louisville

      The Heroic Age invites submissions for a special issue on law and
      legal culture in the early middle ages. We construe the subject of
      this issue broadly, and we are eager to receive submissions
      representing a variety of perspectives, methodologies, national or
      ethnic cultures, and disciplines. Possible topics include (but are
      not limited to): royal legislation, legal manuscripts, law in/and
      literature, legal procedure, charters and diplomatics, writs and
      wills, dispute resolution, theories of law and justice, canon law,
      editing medieval law, law and philosophy, perceptions of medieval law
      in later periods, law in/and art, international law, and intersections
      between medieval Asian and European legal traditions. We welcome
      traditional philological and historicist approaches, as well as those
      informed by modern critical theory.

      Prospective contributors should feel free to contact Andrew Rabin
      (andrew.rabin@...) if they have any questions.

      Articles should be 7000 words including bibliography and endnotes, and
      conform to The Heroic Age's in-house style. Instructions may be found

      reviewed by two readers according to a double-blind policy. All
      submissions should be sent to haediting@.... The deadline for
      submission is August 1st, 2008.

      This issue will also include a second special section on Early
      Medieval Studies and Modern Theory, title to yet be determined.
      The section is being edited and compiled currently by Eileen Joy
      and will include papers from members of the BABEL project.


      Future Plans: Issue 15: Ten Year Anniversary Issue: The World of
      Late Antique Britain

      For our ten year anniversary <i>The Heroic Age</i> is revisiting
      its first issue in a way. Our first issue dealt with the Matter of
      Arthur. Issue 15 will have three sections: One section is
      historical and would examine the world of Late Antique Britain,
      connections with the rest of the continent in Late Antiquity, and
      new views of the Adventus Saxonum. The second section will examine
      Arthur and Arthurian literature. The third section will include
      studies of "under studied" early medieval authors stressing the
      early period and stressing Irish and British authors.


      The Heroic Age is an on-line, peer-reviewed academic journal hosted by
      the Memorial University of Newfoundland. It focuses on Northwestern
      Europe during the early medieval period (from the late 4th through
      12th centuries). We seek to foster dialogue between all scholars of
      this period across ethnic and disciplinary boundaries, including-but
      not limited to-history, archeology, and literature pertaining to the
      period.
