CORE COURSE
World of the Vikings
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits
In this course, we study the history and worldview of pre-Christian Scandinavians as reflected in medieval textual sources and in poems and artifacts from the Viking Age (793 to 1066 CE). We examine Norse society, political structures, gender ideals, religion, and mythology. You learn about Viking expansion, colonies, and conquests. An essential part of this interdisciplinary course is dedicated to medieval Icelandic sagas and how Vikings are portrayed in modern public history and contemporary popular culture.
