CSVA Mission

Our mission is to advance knowledge and understanding of the languages, literatures, history, and visual and material cultures of the Viking Age and its aftermath in the Scandinavian homelands and the Viking diaspora, for both academic and non-academic stakeholders.

We support individual and collaborative research of a high academic standard, and maximise interdisciplinary opportunities through collaborative projects, publications, seminars, conferences, lectures, networks and public engagement activities. The Centre trains scholars of the future by offering a Masters’ course and supervising PhD students.
