Crash Course on Nordic Myths

The literature containing Norse mythology remains one of the most fascinating bodies of medieval storytelling anywhere. Norse myths frequently include a wealth of lore and anecdotes, along with huge casts of characters.

Students will attempt to make sense of Norse myths by examining the structures of the tales and investigating the background in which they were written in manuscripts. Come explore what experts know (and don’t know) about Norse mythology with Old Norse expert Dr. Paul Peterson.

The course runs for four weeks. This is a live virtual class taught over Zoom. Students need a strong internet connection and a device with video capabilities.
