Háskóli Íslands Student Conference on the Medieval North – Call for Papers

2018 Call for Papers

We invite submissions to our 8th annual Háskóli Íslands Student Conference on the Medieval North, which will take place at the University of Iceland, on April 13-14th, 2018.

This student organized two-day event is intended as an interdisciplinary forum for postgraduate students (MA and PhD level) of Old Norse and medieval Scandinavia. Students who have not given papers at an academic conference before are especially encouraged to submit.

In accordance with the HÍ Student Conference‘s previous installments the theme of this year is left broadly open for any independent research related to medieval Scandinavia.

Participation at the conference is not restricted to those enrolled in the University of Iceland, and interested students from other universities are encouraged to submit. In the past years the conference has becoming increasingly international, and last year the conference was attended by speakers from ten universities, in eight countries.

Submission guidelines

If you wish to present a paper at the conference, please e-mail an abstract of 250-300 words to HIstudentconference@gmail.com before 5th of January 2018. The student conference committee reserves the right to make selections based on quality of written abstracts, adherence to submission guidelines, and timely submissions of abstracts.

The conference languages are Icelandic and English, and individual paper presentations will be 20 minutes in length, followed by a 10 minute discussion time.
