CNS staff visit Harvard and Yale

Three members of the UHI Centre for Nordic Studies team recently visited Harvard and Yale universities.

The purpose of the trip was to attend the Scandinavian and Baltic Studies conference at Yale, for which the Centre for Nordic Studies successfully proposed and organised a stream entitled “Reconnecting with the Nordic:  Aspirational Identities in the Nordic Periphery”. In addition, Dr Alex Sanmark, Dr Andrew Jennings, and Dr Ragnhild Ljosland attended a runology symposium at Harvard, and also met with the international offices and academics and Yale and Harvard, initiating contact between these institutions and the UHI.
