ASNC's own Dr Richard Dance features in the BBC 2 documentary Vikings (tonight 9pm, and available for a week thereafter on i-player). He can be seen here on the BBC website explaining how words derived from Old Norse have influenced Modern English.
The Forum for Medieval and Renaissance Studies in Ireland, in association with Dr Elizabeth Boyle, are hosting a two-day conference at University College Cork on 28-29 September, on the topic of 'Transmission, Translation and Dissemination in the European Middle Ages, 1000 -1500'. The programme and further details can be found here. There is no registration fee, but those wishing to attend must register in advance (by 15th September). The conference is generously funded by the Leverhulme Trust, University College Cork, and the Society for the Study of Medieval Languages and Literature.
This blog is written and maintained by members of the Department of Anglo-Saxon, Norse & Celtic, University of Cambridge. We study the history, languages, literatures and material culture of medieval Britain, Ireland and Scandinavia.
