Timothy Liam Waters received his BA in Anglo-Saxon, Norse & Celtic from the University of Cambridge in 2017 and his MA in Scandinavian Studies from UC Berkeley in 2019.
A student in both the department of Scandinavian Studies and Medieval Studies, Liam’s primary focus at UC Berkeley has centered on Scandinavian pre-Christian religion. As an instructor, Liam has taught several undergraduate level classes on topics such as the representation of myth in modern media, Viking-Age travel literature, and Old Norse language. As a PhD. student, he has worked on such topics as literary representations of materiality in the eddic tradition, the rhetoric of medieval kingship, and dream sequences in the íslendingasögur. His current project focuses on space and emplacement in the Old Norse mythological corpus.
