Midway Assessment: Open Seminar with Klaudia Karpinska
The midway assessment is an important milestone for doctoral candidates, where they present what they have achieved so far and describe how they are planning to go further towards submission. We invite everyone to participate in the open session.
The open seminar seminar (c. 60 minutes) will review academic elements. This seminar is in the form of a discussion between the external expert and the candidate of the presented chapters/articles handed in for the assessment. The candidate will give a short presentation (about 10 minutes) of the project at the start of the seminar with emphasis on issues he finds important.
The seminar will take place in Zoom. Link will be provided to those who register.
We ask all who are interested in participating in the open seminar to fill out the registration form.

Klaudia Karpinska is currently Doctoral Research Fellow at the Museum of Cultural History, University of Oslo. She is working on her interdisciplinary PhD project entitled “On Wings to the Otherworld: Bird Remains in Viking Age Graves from Scandinavia and the British Isles”. During three years, she will analyse and interpret graves with eggshells, feather remains and bird bones dated to the Viking Age discovered in Scandinavia and in the British Isles. In her PhD thesis, she will also compare the conclusions emerging from the analysis of archaeological finds from funerary and other contexts with the meanings of birds in medieval written sources, as well as discussing selected bird depictions in Viking Age iconography.
