04-27-10-Odin.jpgAnatoly Liberman, professor of German, Scandinavian and Dutch at the University of Minnesota, will speak to us on the topic of "Who was Odin, and Why Did People Fear Him?" Prof. Liberman has published widely across the spectrum of Germanic linguistics, but his primary interest has been the history of English words. His many works include the recent publication of a popular book for lay readers entitled Word Origins... and How We Know Them: Etymology for Everyone (2005), as well as An Analytic Dictionary of English Etymology (2008), and A Bibliography of English Etymology (2009).
