The Aarhus mythology conference 2019 will take place at the University of Bergen on 31 October–1 November 2019. It is a collaboration between Western Norway University of Applied Sciences and University of Bergen.


Welcome to the 2019 Aarhus Old Norse Mythology Conference in Bergen!

The topic this year is ‘Methodology in Mythology: Where Does the Study of Old Norse Religion Stand, and Where Can We Go from Here?’

Call for posters: The deadline has been extended until 15 October.

The idea is to present a selection of important source types and approaches and discuss their potentials, pros and cons, based upon what the research history has shown. What can we gain by approaching Nordic pre-Christian myth and ritual from this angle? And what are the disadvantages or risks?

Musical entertainment by Einar Selvik, known from Wardruna.

Keynote lecture: Margaret Clunies Ross: Prolonged Echoes 25 Years later.
