A Medieval Studies Journal

The Journal of English and Germanic Philology (JEGP) focuses on Northern European literatures of the Middle Ages, covering Medieval English, Germanic, and Celtic Studies. The word "medieval" potentially encompasses the earliest Germanic and Celtic texts; the vernacular and Latin literatures of the Middle Ages in Britain, Ireland, Germany, and Scandinavia; and any continuities and transitions linking the literatures of the medieval and post-medieval eras, including modern "medievalisms" and the history of medieval literary scholarship.

We are pleased to announce Caroline R. Batten's "Dark Raiders: Disease, Sexual Violence, & Gender Performance in the Old English Maere & Old Norse Mara,” published in Vol. 122, Iss. 4, of Journal of English and Germanic Philology, has been awarded the Society for Medieval Feminist Scholarship’s Best Article Prize 2022–2023.
