At 6pm, on Tuesday 30th October, Dr Eleanor Rosamund Barraclough will be giving at talk at Magdalene College:
‘”They call me Troll”: Things That Go Bump in the Night in Old Norse Literature’.
Dr Barraclough is currently a fellow of Queen’s College, Oxford. Research interests include hybridity in post-classical sagas, medieval Icelandic outlaws and the conceptual place of Greenland and Vinland in the Norse world. Her current project is ‘Mapping the Viking World: Conceptualising Geography and Constructing Identity in Saga Literature’, an exploration of how the medieval Icelanders conceptualised the geography of the world and their place within it through the sagas.
The talk will take place in the Parlour, at Magdalene. All are very welcome to join us for dinner afterwards at a local restaurant.
