research overview

  • I work with pre-Christian Scandinavian mythology and religion (Old Norse or Viking Age mythology and religion). I take an interest in the oral background to the medieval Icelandic literature, its ecological context, and contemporary applications such as Neo-paganism and the use of the Scandinavian past in politics. I also research Scandinavian witchcraft and occultism.
