On Tuesday 7 December 2021 (14.00 CET)Dr. Synnøve Myking (University of Bergen, Norway) will explain about her ongoing research in a paper titled 'Connections between Scandinavia and the Low Countries in the High Middle Ages: Traces in Manuscript Culture'.

This project was awarded a three-year mobility grant from the Research Council of Norway.
