PhD project

Within my PhD-project I want to discuss the use, function and perception of (physical) violence in the political culture during the Nordic ‘civil wars’ in the High Middle Ages. Geographically I will focus on Norway and Denmark, and compare these regions as described in the narrative sources in Old Norse as well as Latin. By comparing these, not only different regions, but also different literary cultures I will hopefully be able to identify characteristics and mutualities. By focusing on a special phenomenon, i.e. violence, I will be presumably get a glimpse of the normative framework, the political “rules of the game” and their possible changes as well as the literary device to depict them.

My work is part of the project "The Nordic ‘civil wars’ in the High Middle Ages from a cross-disciplinary and comparative perspective".
