Valentine’s Day is all about love — mutual love and shared love. But what if love is unrequited or one-sided? The problem, as always, is not a new one. It was well known in ancient and medieval times alike, but different people had their own ways of dealing with it....

Hello there! I am an alumnus of UNM currently pursuing a PhD in medieval Norse literary reception at the University of Iceland. I am part of the organizing committee for the Háskói Íslands annual Student Conference on the Medieval North, and we have just sent out our CfP, to be held in April 2021. Student conferences are excellent opportunities for young academics to get their feet wet in conference presentation, so I thought it would be relevant to share here. We are planning to hold the event in person, although we will also have things set to transition to an online conference should things take a turn for the worse with regard to Covid-19. I invite anyone interested to send in an abstract by December 5th for an opportunity to visit the home of the sagas and eddas!
OK, it's a promo for TED's Brilliant feature, but it's still kind of fun.
