Welcome to the Memory & the Pre-Modern North Network

Memory and the Pre-Modern North: An International Memory Studies Research Network Focussing on Viking Age and Medieval Scandinavia (MPMN) is an international scholarly research network whose purpose is to facilitate the application of the many different forms of memory studies, including inter- and cross-disciplinary approaches, to our understanding of Viking Age and Medieval Nordic literature and culture.

The network’s website looks to promote exchange within the academic community about publications and other developments relevant to the study of pre-modern Scandinavia via memory studies.

Our logo is taken from the 17th-century Melsteðs Edda (SÁM 66), and shows Óðinn and his ravens, Huginn and Muninn.
