Call for Papers


The organising committee of the conference ‘Time, Space and Narrative in Medieval Icelandic Literature’ invites scholars working on research related to the conference theme to submit proposals for papers. The conference is to be held at the University of Iceland, Reykjavík, Iceland, on Friday 17th and Saturday 18th March 2017.

The conference is the closing event of the 3-year Rannís-funded research project ‘Tími, rými, frásögn og Íslendingasögur’ (‘Time, space, narrative and Íslendingasögur’).The project has been led by Professor Torfi Tulinius with co-proposers Professor Gísli Sigurðsson and Dr Emily Lethbridge, doctoral students Anna Katharina Heiniger and Martina Ceolin, and with Professor Jürg Glauser (Universities of Basel and Zürich) and Associate Professor Pernille Hermann (University of Aarhus) as external project advisors.

The project has investigated aspects of the treatment of time and space in the Íslendingasögur. While it is anticipated that the focus of the conference will be on the Íslendingasögur, papers on other genres of medieval Icelandic literature are also most welcome.

The deadline for submission of abstracts is 1st October 2016. Paper proposals should be no more than 500 words in length and should include information about the applicant’s current academic affiliation. 

Paper proposals and other enquiries should be emailed to
