Join TOEBI (Teachers of Old English in Britain and Ireland)!

Dear Medievalists,

You are cordially invited to become a member of TOEBI (Teachers of Old English in Britain and Ireland). TOEBI is a key organisation to join for anyone pursuing an academic career in Old English related matters or indeed for anyone with a serious interest in Old English language and literature. Postrgraduates often overlook TOEBI, assuming that only teachers can be members. However this is not the case and postgraduate students are very welcome.

Why should you join?

  • The first and most important reason is to have the opportunity to meet the academics who are making things happen in British and Irish universities.
  • TOEBI awards bursaries to help postgraduate students and early-career researchers to attend conferences.
  • The annual TOEBI conference is itself a stimulating and comfortable environment in which to present a paper. We had some very interesting papers this year on everything from Beowulf to Bede, passing by digital technology.
  • Student membership is only £5 p/a

We very much hope you will join us soon. Here is the link to the web page:

If you have any questions please email me at:

Warmest regards,

Eleni Ponirakis

TOEBI Postrgraduate Rep.
