Colonising, Decolonising and Postcolonising the Viking Age

CALL FOR PAPERS
COLONISING, DECOLONISING AND POSTCOLONISING THE VIKING AGE
16–18 APRIL 2011
Colonising, Decolonising and Postcolonising the Viking Age seeks to revisit the Vikings through the lens of postcolonial theory, in order to open the period to new research questions on such topics as Viking-age aesthetics, the role of art in cultural translation and identity formation, cultural hybridity in the Viking age, gender, history and the landscape of memory, the work and preservation of tangible and intangible heritage, the Vikings and historical/national consciousness.
Papers are invited from all fields on any aspect of these or related topics. Submissions from graduate students are particularly welcome, and we do have a limited number of bursaries to support both UK and international students.
Two days of the conference will be devoted to scholarly papers, with the third day reserved for general discussion and workshops centred on enhancing both funding and postgraduate resources.
Please send paper proposals or expressions of interest to:
