Norwegian Manuscript Fragments of French Origin and their Historical Context”, which was part of a larger research project at the University of Bergen studying Latin manuscript fragments as a source of knowledge of medieval Norwegian book culture. From 2020 to 2023 she will be conducting the project “Flanders, Norway, and Denmark: Relations and Intertextual Exchanges in the High Middle Ages (ca. 1080–1383)”, which is financed by a mobility grant from the Research Council of Norway.
