Norse Mythology & Pop Culture

Sunday 04:45 PM to 05:30 PM

710: Freeman Theatre

Vikings have never been more popular! With TV shows like Vikings, the Almighty Johnsons and The Last Kingdom …movies like Thor: Ragnarok …video games such as God of War 4, Banner Saga and Senua’s Sacrifice …role-playing-games like Fate of the Norns …you can’t help but think that Vikings have invaded all of our pop culture!
In this panel, Andrew Valkauskas, author of the Illuminated Edda (translation of both the prose and poetic eddas) will bring the authentic myths to life. Dispelling some of the made up elements by Marvel and others, you’ll get to hear the real tales as they inspired Lord of the Rings and much of our geek culture. Q&A will follow.
