In this course, we focus on the representations of women in the Viking world. The idea of strong Viking women is explored in numerous ways including the question of gender and the sphere between male and female, women warriors, and crossdressing as seen in the Sagas. The course also examines women weaving female representations of heroic narratives in circulation, i.e., visual poetry, and women as travelers between continents.
