This recording from April 15th, 2022.

Signum MA student Phil Knight will present his thesis “Drauma-Jóns Saga: A Digital Edition and Translation” and respond to questions from the audience in an interactive Thesis Theatre. The discussion will be facilitated by Phil’s thesis supervisor, Dr. Paul Peterson.

Abstract:

Though once long neglected and even disparaged by academia, the Old Norse-Icelandic genre of chivalric sagas or riddarasögur were, to judge by the number of surviving manuscripts containing these stories, clearly extremely popular with their Late Medieval Age audiences. Drauma-Jóns saga, itself preserved in over fifty manuscripts dating from the mid to late fourteenth century through to the nineteenth, was no exception. This study presents a digital edition and English translation of Drauma-Jóns saga (The Story of Dream-Jón) based on the AM 657 4° manuscript housed at the Den Arnamagnæanske Samling repository in Copenhagen, Denmark.

About the Presenter:

Phil Knight is from Wolverhampton in the UK. He has been studying for an MA with Signum University since 2017 with a special focus on Germanic Philology. Prior to this he obtained a BA (Hons) in Classical Studies with The Open University. His academic interests include studying and learning languages (both ancient and modern), Old Norse-Icelandic literature, history (especially medieval), mythology and folklore. In his spare time he enjoys reading (especially horror and the occult, fantasy and sci-fi), film, TV and theatre, listening to music, and following the fortunes of his beloved football team, West Brom.
