Viking Clothes by CallegoFeersum Viking Waryur by Callego


I was interviewed at Paper Tape magazine! Forgot to post about that earlier, but here is the link: papertapemag.com/post/56407569…

Apparently they liked my blog, and contacted me a few months ago to talk about my field (Norse mythology, etc) and about my art. We chatted about how I decided to pursue an academic career in Old Norse literature and culture, about my current research, about the blood eagle ritual and whether it has any roots in reality, and about just how much more complex supposed "Viking Culture" is once you actually study it in depth.

Check it out and pass it on!

United States
I am a recent PhD in Scandinavian Studies. Just spent 2 1/2 years teaching courses in Old Norse literature, history, and mythology, + Scandinavian Folklore at UC Berkeley, and most recently a Visiting Professor at Gustavus Adolphus college in MN (and now crossing my fingers for another position soon). Also a published poet (small time still), with recent pieces in Ideomancer and Everyday Poets. I've started a blog (Vikings, Books, Etc) where I've been writing book reviews, posting pictures of vikings, and other things. Working with iPad art programs and now with a Bamboo tablet and Photoshop elements (still learning how digital art works). In addition to DeviantArt, here are my websites:
