Academics Are At War Over Racist Roots of ‘Anglo-Saxon’ Studies
The Daily Beast Erika Harlitz-Kern,The Daily Beast 14 hours ago

In September 2019, at the 19th biennial meeting of the small, prestigious professional organization called the International Society for Anglo-Saxonists, or ISAS, independent scholar Mary Rambaran-Olm took to the podium and called out the inherent racism of the term “Anglo-Saxon.” She asked ISAS to change its name, and then declared her immediate resignation as a member of the board.

Rambaran-Olm’s speech sent shock waves through the world of experts on Anglo-Saxon England—and in the months that have passed since then, colleagues have turned on each other in a heated debated over the use of the term “Anglo-Saxon” and whether it constitutes white supremacy.

This debate might seem like an example of typical academic hair splitting with little to no relevance to the general public. But in the case of “Anglo-Saxon,” what might look like academic inside baseball has, in fact, major implications for wider society. This debate cuts to the root of the polarization that we are currently experiencing in the United States and the United Kingdom

The Anglo-Saxon Period is referred to as Early Medieval. In the wake of Rambaran-Olm’s speech and resignation, ISAS has voted to change its name. In other words, the only reason why the Anglo-Saxons still exist is because we let them.

The article gives a wrong definition for Anglo Saxons. When they came they were various tribes with various names then after a couple of centuries mixing with the romanized British created a new culture of Anglo Saxons.

Fake and racially motivated. The 'inherent' racism is racists misusing the term and the actual history has no other meaningful name.
