Britt Mize’s research interests include literature and language of both the Old and Middle English periods. His research program centers on the concept and uses of tradition.
Mize’s work will generate a public scholarly database and a traditional scholarly book to document the influence of the eighth century epic poem Beowulf on the modern world and to analyze its impact on academic and popular culture (scholarly, creative, political, educational, and religious) from the eighteenth century to today.
