About me

I am a doctoral student and teacher in the History of Religions. My ongoing thesis project discusses the variables that determine the types of, and conditions for, the continuity and discontinuity of tradition in the Icelandic sagas and the oral tradition that preceded them. This is done in three main parts: a review of what we know about the Old Norse (specifically Old Icelandic) oral tradition between c. 800 and 1300 A.D.; a theoretical overview of concepts relating to continuity, depth of tradition, collective memory processes, etc.; and three thematic empirical studies.

In addition to the history of religions, I teach courses for prospective teachers: didactics of religion, ethics and philosophy of religion.
