Dat­ing the Old Norse Poet­ic Edda: A mul­ti­fac­to­r­i­al analy­sis of lin­guis­tic fea­tures
BuchcoverThis book offers new dat­ing of the poems of the Old Norse Poet­ic Edda, per­haps our best sources about the mythol­o­gy and leg­ends of the Viking Age. This study com­pares the anony­mous Eddic poems to dat­ed skaldic poems with respect to five phe­nom­e­na that devel­op diachron­i­cal­ly in ear­ly Old Norse: the exple­tive par­ti­cle of, types of nega­tion, word order, types of rel­a­tive clause, and met­ri­cal cri­te­ria. After exam­in­ing these dat­ing fea­tures indi­vid­u­al­ly, the three most reli­able criteria—the par­ti­cle of, nega­tion, and rel­a­tive clause type—are com­bined into a mul­ti­fac­to­r­i­al analy­sis using a Naïve Bayes Clas­si­fi­er. The clas­si­fi­er assigns a date to each Eddic poem, and these pro­posed dates have inter­est­ing impli­ca­tions for our under­stand­ing of these texts as sources for the medieval his­to­ry, mythol­o­gy, lin­guis­tics, and lit­er­a­ture of the Ger­man­ic peo­ples. This book will have broad inter­dis­ci­pli­nary inter­est, not just to his­tor­i­cal lin­guists and philol­o­gists but also to schol­ars of Norse his­to­ry, lit­er­a­ture, and mythol­o­gy.

Scan­di­navia through sun­glass­es: spaces of cul­tur­al exchange between southern/southeastern Europe and nordic coun­tries
BuchcoverHow do the North and the South see each oth­er? How have their images been cre­at­ed? How do they change across time, space and source? Here are the main ques­tions that the authors would like to answer in this col­lec­tion of imagol­o­gy-ori­ent­ed stud­ies sit­u­at­ed at the cross­roads of var­i­ous dis­ci­plines: South-North in lit­er­a­ture, South-North in oth­er cul­tur­al pro­duc­tion, and South-North in new per­spec­tives.
The con­tri­bu­tions show in which way the cre­ation and rela­tion­ships among the images of the South and North are inter­pret­ed and mod­elled by dif­fer­ent inter­me­di­a­tors through dif­fer­ent sources. The jour­ney starts with lit­er­ary texts, their trans­la­tions and recep­tion; and con­tin­ues across the descrip­tion of the­atre spaces, speech­es and musi­cal forms, to con­clude with stud­ies based on online sources and inter­views.
