Languages, Myths and Finds: Translating Norse and Viking Cultures for the Twenty-first Century
LMF is an AHRC Collaborative Skills Development Programme, running from 2013-14. The programme brings together graduate students and full-time researchers from across the UK and Ireland to explore the translation of Norse and Viking cultures into the modern day. Programme participants are working with local partners in five communities with Norse heritage: the Isle of Lewis, Cleveland, the Isle of Man, Dublin and Munster (Cork and Waterford). The programme also draws on the work of the British Museum and participants will draw on the Museum’s ‘Vikings: Life and Legend‘ exhibition as part of their engagement with local communities.
LMF is inviting applications from PhD students to take part in this programme. Please note that you should be available to attend the following events:
- 6-9 January: Planning workshop at the University of Cambridge
- 28 March: Visit to the ‘Vikings: Life and Legend’ exhibition at the British Museum
- 28-29 June: Final conference at the University of Nottingham
In addition to this, participants must be available to visit one of the five UK or Irish locations during the Easter vacation.
