I am a PhD student, based in Reykjavík/Mývatn, Iceland. My PhD dissertation, which I write under joint supervision at the University of Iceland and University College Dublin, examines queer Icelandic literature, with special focus on the works of Elías Mar (1924–2007). I have also done substantial (non-queer related) research on the works of Jakobína Sigurðardóttir (1918–1994).
On this webpage I will write about diverse issues related to my work – sometimes in English but mostly in Icelandic.
