Register for Accommodation for Gersum Conference 2018

This conference will explore the historical and cultural contexts and legacies of Anglo-Scandinavian encounters in the Viking Age from cross-disciplinary perspectives.  The AHRC-funded Gersum Project’s focus on the Norse impact on the English language itself will be brought into conversation with the study of archaeology, literature and inscriptions; with contact in the North Sea and Irish Sea regions more widely; with lexicography and dialectology; and with the Norse influence in the onomastic record.

Speakers include Lesley Abrams, Rhona Alcorn, Jayne Carroll, Philip Durkin, Nik Gunn, Judith Jesch, Jane Kershaw, Máire Ní Mhaonaigh, David Parsons, Elizabeth Ashman Rowe. Sara Pons-Sanz, Brittany Schorn, Matthew Townend, Thorlac Turville-Petre, George Walkden.
