Thesis Title: Engín heyrði aðr slika: Women in Old Norse Translations from Latin
Supervisor: Dr. Sian Gronlie
Doctoral Research: My research explores the presentation of women in Old Norse translations from Latin, focusing on the texts of AM 226 fol. (Stjorn, Romverja saga, Alexanders saga, and Gyðinga saga). Medieval scribes significantly changed texts in the process of translation; examining the women in these Old Norse translations can reveal moments of focus as the scribes change and adapt the Latin source material. The women within these translations have yet to receive significant critical attention. My research aims to expand the current scholarship on gender within Old Norse literature by examining the neglected women within the texts of AM 226 fol. I am fully-funded by the AHRC and Lincoln College. I am also a Clarendon Scholar.
Research Interests: Old Norse Literature; Old English Literature; Medieval Translations; Gender Studies.
