Richard Rawlinson Center

The Richard Rawlinson Center for Anglo-Saxon Studies and Manuscript Research, a research center under the aegis of the Medieval Institute at Western Michigan University, fosters teaching and research in the culture and history of early medieval England and in the broader field of manuscript studies.

Had the 55th International Congress on Medieval Studies (2020) occurred, the center would have sponsored or co-sponsored five sessions:

  • Illuminated Manuscripts in the Insular World
  • Irish Manuscripts in Anglo-Saxon England
  • Peripheral Texts in Anglo-Saxon Manuscripts
  • Old English Studies in the Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries I-II (co-sponsored with the Institute for Medieval Studies, University of New Mexico)

The Rawlinson Center congress speaker for the 56th Congress (2021) is Bernard Meehan (deferred from the 55th Congress).
