Norse in the North (CFP 4th March; Conference 4th June)

Norse in the North Call for Papers

The Norse in the North project is now inviting abstract submissions from postgraduate students for its annual conference, this year to be held at the University of York. Proposals are due by the 4th March 2016. The keynote speaker will be Professor Heather O’Donoghue.

The theme of this year’s conference is “Translation & Transmission”, and the conference organisers invite students from literature, history, archaeology, and art history to submit a proposal. Possible topics include (but are by no means limited to): modern translation of Old Norse texts, Old Norse translations of medieval European texts, transmission of literary, artistic and architectural styles and motifs, cultural influences, and language contact and multilingualism. We are delighted to announce that Professor Heather O’Donoghue will deliver our keynote address.

Please contact with abstracts of 200-300 words for 20-minute papers by 4 th March 2016. The conference is an interdisciplinary international event, and abstracts are welcome from all-levels of postgraduates at any institution. For further information, please visit or find us on Facebook at Norse in the North, or Twitter @NorseintheNorth.

Norse in the North is an exciting postgraduate-driven project designed to serve as a platform for demonstrating the strength and originality of Old Norse research in the north of England, centred around an annual interdisciplinary conference in Old Norse and Viking Studies. It is a collaboration between the universities of York, Leeds, and Durham.
