M.A. in Medieval Icelandic Studies
From Úlfar Bragason, director of the Stofnun Árna Magnússonar (Sigurdur Nordal Institute):
A new program, the M.A. in Medieval Icelandic Studies, started in the Autumn of 2005 at the University of Iceland. The program is run in cooperation with the Manuscript Institute (Stofnun Árna Magnússonar in Reykjavík) and the Sigurdur Nordal Institute (Stofnun Sigurðar Nordals). The course is aimed at providing postgraduate students with the necessary tools to study Old/Medieval Icelandic Texts in the original and in their manuscript context, with a special emphasis on interdisciplinary study. Classes will be taught in English.This is great news. One of the best academic experiences of my life was the Sigurdur Nordal Institute's two-week Medieval Icelandic Studies Programme I took in the summer of 1999.
Deadline for application is 15 April 2006.
