Dr Gareth Evans has been awarded funding for a workshop on ‘saga emotions’

17th December 2020

Dr Gareth Evans, our Lecturer in English, has received a grant from the John Fell Fund to run a workshop on ‘saga emotions’. The workshop will bring together internationally leading and emerging scholars to generate innovative research into the language and representation of emotion in Old Norse-Icelandic saga literature. 

The workshop will ultimately lead to a substantial edited collection, provisionally entitled Saga Emotions: A Handbook, which will be co-edited by Dr Evans and Professor Carolyne Larrington, St John's College.
