Prof. Dr Thomas Mohnike (Strasbourg): Mythemes of the North. Tracing Historical Change in the Discursive Grammar of the North with Computational Methods

Grafik zur Veranstaltung, © IZfG

Thomas Mohnike, Professor of Scandinavian Studies at the University of Strasbourg, will introduce the international research project “Mythemes of the North”: Aiming to map the evolution of narrative knowledge of the North in Europe since the Middle Ages, the project studies its smallest units – the mythemes of the North – and their narrative grammar in cultural circulation. It uses the latest advances of digital humanities, cross breeding it with productive new readings and sometimes voluntary misunderstandings of (post-)structuralist theories, cultural media studies and studies of geographies of knowledge.

Organisation and moderation
