Dr Gareth Lloyd Evans

My main research area is Old Norse-Icelandic literature, and I have particular research interests in masculinities, affect and emotion, skaldic poetry, and female homosociality. I have secondary research interests in Middle English literature and contemporary medievalism. 

My doctoral thesis interrogated the construction and problematization of masculinities within the Íslendingasögur (‘Sagas of Icelanders’), and I have work published or forthcoming on skaldic poetry, the correspondences between medieval and postmodern modes of textuality, and contemporary medievalism.
