Podcasts and Publication

In the hope of continuing interest in the Old Norse Poetry in Performance project, we are in the process of editing a volume of articles which presents developed research based on our 2016 conference theme. We are thrilled to announce that we have concluded discussions with Routledge and entered into a contract to produce this volume for publication in 2021. Further information on the content and scope of the volume will be made available here in the near future.

We are very happy to make available audio recordings of some of the papers given at Old Norse Poetry in Performance, hosted at Somerville College in June 2016. Individual papers and performances will continue to be uploaded below.
