I'm interested in abstracts exploring aspects of medieval Icelandic law, of law and literature, of medieval Icelandic law in comparison with some Scandinavian, German, or English laws. Regarding the bishops' sagas, basically any paper exploring some aspect of these sagas, comparative or otherwise, would be good. I've had papers looking at the difference between excommunication and outlawry, the difference between the Law of Nature and the Law of Man, extreme unction in Thorlak's saga. Really, the sessions are open in terms of their topics as long as the paper belongs, broadly, in the topic.
