Folklore and Old Norse Mythology conference is the most recent form of an annual international event on Old Norse mythology that brings together leading international scholars in the field along with promising new talent for rich and fruitful discussion. The event is commonly known as the ‘Aarhus mythology conference’, since it was established there in 2006–2008 (and anticipated in 2005), after which it has travelled to Aberdeen (2009), Reykjavík (2010), Zürich (2011), Bonn (2012), Harvard (2013), Aarhus (2014), Stockholm (2015), Berkeley (2016), and now to Helsinki. Helsinki has been among the world’s foremost centers for folklore research for more than a century, so it is only natural that the theme of this year’s event be Folklore and Old Norse Mythology.
