About Me: I have a BA in Archaeological Anthropology from the University of California in Santa Barbara and an MA in medieval Icelandic studies from the University of Iceland. My research focuses primarily on the relationship between place, narrative, and time in the Icelandic sagas, and it considers issues such as landscape and land ownership, memory, and travel. My public folklore work focuses on cultural revitalization in indigenous communities and my digital humanities work focuses on developing interactive digital tools for teaching.
