La Belle Époque, the period of Western history lasting from roughly 1871 to 1914 (though this seminar will not be so strict with periodizations), is often characterized as a time of relative peace and prosperity, before the outbreak of the First World War.
This panel will consider the ways in which disability is represented in medieval Icelandic literature, particularly in medieval saga writing. Panellists will engage with the concept of disability beyond the traditional bio-medical understanding of the term, exploring disability as a social phenomenon embedded in social arrangements and cultural conventions. They will seek to understand what constituted disability in medieval Icelandic society, culture, and history prior to the establishment of disability as a modern legal, bureaucratic and administrative concept.
