We are very excited to announce that the NRN 2013 keynote speaker is Andrew Newby. Newby is a Docent at the Department of World Cultures at Helsinki University. As a historian whose research covers both the Nordic region and Britain, he is an especially apt speaker to start off our conference of UK-based Nordic research.
His keynote paper is titled
"The Cradle of Our Noblest Energies and Blood": Victorian Britain's(Ab)use of Scandinavian History.
