I work with Old Norse literary and cultural history, and especially saga literature. I am a Carlsberg PhD-fellow at the Department of Nordic Studies and Linguistics, and work at the Arnamagnæan manuscript collection.
PhD-project: Skáld - a literary historical investigation into the role of the skald in Old Norse literature.
In my PhD-project I am exploring the role of the skald as a figure across Old Norse prose texts as well as in the skaldic poetry. Here, I work with the Old Norse literary corpus in its entirety, and investigate the role and attributes of the skalds in a literary context.
