OEN Subsidia

The OEN Subsidia has been reconstituted as Old English Publications. In partnership with the Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, OEN will continue to publish brief studies, editions, bibliographies, and other volumes for scholarly and classroom use. We do not publish monographs. Here is a list of volumes, some of which are for sale through Medieval Institute Publications (WMU). Our first volume has appeared: Jane Toswell, trans. Jorge Luis Borges: Germanic Literatures.

Essays, reports, and memorials are available for volumes 32 to 44. Offprints in pdf are free. Volumes 3 to 41 are available for free in their entirety.
