In her study of Old Norse literature and culture, Kate Heslop (Scandinavian) approaches Viking Age poetry through an innovative interpretive framework that considers the texts as pieces within a broader media landscape. Focusing on the poetry’s capacity to embody memory, visuality, and sound, Viking Mediologies (Fordham, 2022) is an examination of premodern multimedia rooted in the embodied poetic practice of Viking Age skalds (poets).
