Iceland Conference Poster

Join us at the Medieval Institute in our main reading room for the opening reception of the conference. 

"From Iceland to the Americas" is a three-day international conference exploring the impact that brief medieval Norse settlements have had on cultural imagination in and of the Americas – in novels, poetry, history, politics, arts and crafts, comics, films, and video games. 

The conference has been made possible with the assistance of a Faculty Assistance Program – Initiation Grant, the Institute for Scholarship in the Liberal Arts, the Notre Dame College of Arts and Letters, the Henkels Lecture Series, the Medieval Institute, the Nanovic Institute for European Studies, and the Department of English.
