Trauma studies in literature have concentrated more on the literature of the 20th and 21st century than that of past societies. The methodological difficulties of studying complex psychological phenomena in literature from a society about which we possess limited information are obvious. The aim of the session is to show by example how trauma studies can open up new perspectives on the texts of medieval Iceland and to engage a discussion about how psychology and related disciplines can add to our understanding of the medieval literature of Iceland.
