Teaching Beowulf in the Context of Old Norse-Icelandic Literature

A four-week institute for twenty-five college and university faculty to study the cultural and historical contexts of Beowulf in connection with Old Norse-Icelandic literary texts in translation.

This institute will engage participants with detailed information about the culture, religions, and history of Anglo-Saxon England and medieval Iceland, using the Anglo-Saxon poem Beowulf and various Icelandic sagas as starting points for discussion. These discussions, together with hands on translation exercises, will provide participants with a greater and synergetic awareness of and appreciation for the literature of Anglo-Saxon England and medieval Iceland.
