> 'Early Arthurian Tradition: Text and Context'
> The editorial board of the online journal THE HEROIC AGE: A
> <http://members.aol.com/heroicage1/homepage.html> is issuing the
> following call for papers. Our premier issue, which will be
> edited by Thomas Green, will be devoted to a single topic, EARLY
> on any subject that relates to either the texts that make up the
> 'Early Arthurian Tradition' (such as 'Historia Brittonum' or
> 'Culhwch ac Olwen') or the context within which these texts were
> created and the 'Arthurian legend' developed. Thus, papers on
> Arthur's possible historicity, the socio-political organisation
> of 'post-Roman' Britain, the nature of 'Historia Brittonum' and
> folkloric elements in Welsh Arthurian literature are all equally
> welcome, provided that they can be related to the early Arthurian
> tradition in some way. Although the focus of this issue is early
> Arthurian literature, authors should feel free to draw on later
> materials in the course of their discussions.
> Guidelines for authors are available at
> <http://members.aol.com/heroicage1/authors.html> and should be
> consulted before offering a piece for consideration. The single
> topic of this issue applies to those sections of the journal
> entitled 'Feature Articles', 'History by Biography' and 'The
> Forum' (as defined on the webpage), and papers can be submitted
> to any of these sections. Please note, however, that the
> 'History by Biography' section will be given over entirely for
> this issue to possible candidates for the 'historical Arthur',
> such as Lucius Artorius Castus and Ambrosius Aurelianus. All
> papers should be submitted in 'text only' or ASCII format to the
> General Editor of the journal at MichelleZi@aol.com by March 6,
> 1999 for review by the editors.
> Any articles or essays that do not accomodate themselves to the
> above subject requirements are very welcome and can be sent to
> the General Editor for possible inclusion in future regular
> issues of the journal.
> Any queries regarding this issue of the journal should be
> addressed to either me, the Issue Editor, at
> thomas.green@exeter.oxford.ac.uk, or to the General Editor,
> Michelle Ziegler, at MichelleZi@aol.com.
