Research Summary: Gender and migration in the Viking diaspora; womens’ roles in ethnic conflict and assimilation in the Irish Sea Region and Iceland My current project focuses on the intersections of women’s history, enslavement, migration, and assimilation in Scandinavian settlements in the North Atlantic and Eastern Europe. I am particularly interested in the socioeconomic impact of the movement of enslaved women and men within the Viking diaspora (both west and east), as well as late medieval attitudes towards slavery expressed in Icelandic saga literature.
