Dr Cathy Swift has written to inform us that Irish Conference of Medievalists is running an 11-Day Introduction to Old Norse Language and Literature at Mary Immaculate College, University of Limerick, Ireland, from 20-30 July.
This summer school, which is based on the successful format in which Old Irish has been taught at Limerick for the past few years, will be taught by Dr Katrina Burge of the University of Melbourne. Students will spend about 60 hours learning Old Norse over the course of the eleven days
They offer Bed & Breakfast accommodation at 25 euros per night and a taxi service to sights of Norse interest in the mid-west of Ireland whenever the teacher allows us to take a break. Price for the course is 300 euros.
The course is open to all. If you’re interested, please contact Cathy directly by email at Catherine.Swift@mic.ul.ie.
