Medieval Grad Podcast

Apr 25, 2022

Did you know that Loki was a gender-bending God? In this episode of the Medieval Grad Podcast, Lucie Laumonier interviews Matthew Roby, a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Toronto. Matthew’s research looks at sex and gender in Old Norse and Icelandic sagas. There were many gender-bending characters in these texts, informing us of the gender representations and roles of Norse societies. The topic was so dense that we’re making a two-part series about this – first, gender, and in the next episode, sex!
