 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'The objectives of this project are to add to the researcher's understanding of, expertise in and potential to disseminate knowledge about the literature, culture and textual production of medieval Iceland, and the way literary texts shape and reflect identity and ideology. On one hand, studying the late medieval period’s literary output in an inclusive and comprehensive manner, and making appropriate use of all extant evidence, will lead to a more integrated, multivalent and nuanced image of late medieval Iceland, its ideology and its relationship with Europe. Framing texts even wider with textual production, i.e. in their contemporary historical context and their physical vessel, the manuscript, adds more information to an already rich image that the sources will compose. By taking a thematic approach across genre boundaries, and examining texts defined as both historical writing as well as fictional material, the aim is to set out a view of late medieval identities and ideologies in relation to the outside world as they are constructed and represented in literary texts. On the other hand, the project will be informed by theoretical frameworks borrowed from fields outside of medieval studies that are conducive to uncovering hidden subtexts and have the potential to produce insights that would be difficult to achieve otherwise. By applying (post)colonial theory and other appropriate theoretical frameworks to the sources, the project aims to tease out the ways in which literature reflected and possibly shaped ideology and identity on many levels in late medieval Iceland. The second goal is for the researcher to acquire transferable skills through professionalisation programmes at Harvard University; the fellowship will provide opportunity for the researcher to be mentored by a leading scholar in the field, and create opportunities for collaboration.'
