PhD Candidate in Scandinavian Studies, University of Aberdeen

I am a PhD Candidate at the University of Aberdeen's Centre for Scandinavian Studies. My research tends to focus on the representation of social phenomena in textual sources, but I am broadly interested in interdisciplinary and comparative approaches to the study of northern-Europe's early medieval milieu. My current research examines the phenomenon of deviant and non-normative behaviours and identities in early medieval Scandinavian societies.
