Aðalheiður Guðmundsdóttir. 2013. „Stories of All Kinds: Studying Icelandic Narrative“. Boðsfyrirlestur fyrir Högra Seminarium på Skandinavistika, University of Tartu, 17. apríl.
Ágrip: In this presentation, I will introduce Icelandic saga material and storytelling traditions. I will talk about the various ways of studying Icelandic narratives, along with presenting my own research past and present (including a review of some of my published works). I will focus in particular on the oral traditions of Iceland and on the different forms of storytelling materials that have been preserved in various forms, including medieval saga literature, folk poetry (rímur ‘rhymes’ and ballads) and folktales. Preceding this, I will give a short presentation on the University of Iceland, and the department of Folkloristics in Iceland, as regards emphasis, size, staff, and research.
