Conference: Using the past
Updated: Dec 14, 2020
Between 9 and 12 December 2020 I will be participating in the on-line conference “Using the Past: The Middle Ages in the Spotlight”. My presentation “From Oral Prosimetrum to Viking Metal: Reception of Old Norse legendary sagas in Scandinavia from the Middle Ages until Today” is dealing with the socio-political circumstances in which three adaptations of the story of Hrómundur appeared: the seventeenth-century saga, the nineteenth-century saga, and the Viking Metal adaptation of the story performed in 2020 by the Faroese metal band Týr.
