Call for Papers

Paper proposals are invited for the 6th annual Háskóli Íslands Student Conference on the Medieval North, to be held at the University of Iceland on April 8–9, 2016.

This student-organized two-day event is intended as an interdisciplinary forum for postgraduate students (MA and PhD level) of Old Norse and medieval Scandinavia. Students who have not given papers at academic conferences before are especially encouraged to submit.

Participation in this conference is not restricted to those enrolled at the University of Iceland, and interested students abroad are encouraged to apply as well.
