Dr Kate Heslop (KSH)

all editors

Kate Heslop is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Scandinavian at the University of California, Berkeley. Her research centers on skaldic and eddic poetry and the heroic tradition. She approaches this material from a medial perspective, encompassing not only the media transition associated with the arrival of manuscript textuality, but also multi- and intermedial relations of bodies (as sites of performance, memory, the senses, emotion, etc.), codices, inscriptions, and images. She has published widely on these topics and is working on a book on poetic mediation in Viking and Medieval Scandinavia.
