About me

Art in Translation performanceI am a scholar of medieval and modern Icelandic literature currently based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. I have worked as an instructor at both the University of Manitoba and the University of Winnipeg and as a post-doctoral researcher with the University of Iceland. My research interests include disability, emotions, gender and sexuality, and paranormal encounters in the medieval Icelandic sagas and literary medievalism in modern Icelandic literature and in Canadian culture and history. I have also worked as a literary translator of modern Icelandic and Icelandic-Canadian poetry, prose, and drama. On this site you will find information about my academic background, research and publications, teaching experience, and some research projects I have worked or currently am working on. I have also compiled here collections of resources that may be useful to scholars and others interested in Old-Norse Icelandic literature and medieval Nordic history, language, and culture more generally. You can also find some of my artwork here.
