Another keynote lecture to look forward to will be given by Haki Antonsson! A medieval historian based at UCL (University College London), Haki specialises in the history and culture of Scandinavia from the High Middle Ages. He has a particular interest in the Christianization of Scandinavia, especially the cult of saints and the associated Old Norse and Latin literature. His expertise in these areas will be expanded on in his upcoming book Damnation and Salvation in Old Norse Literature and we might get a glimpse of the ideas explored in this monograph during his keynote lecture at the #medievalaber conference!
