About Fjorn

Welcome to Fjorn's Hall!

Fjorn's Hall is a blog and a podcast where everyone can explore and learn about the medieval North, its sagas, and its lore. Written and created by a graduated academic with a Master's in History, this Hall is both a resource and a gathering place for people who are passionate about the history and literature of the Norse world. While a Companion of the Hall, you will not only enjoy good mead and stories by the hearthside, but also a wide variety of informative resources put together by a Skald with magical powers. 

Who's Fjorn?

Although the name Fjorn complements this blog’s Norse aesthetic far better, my real name is Steven T. Dunn (which is very boring in comparison). I’m currently an independent medievalist with an M.A. in History from the University of South Florida. My research primarily focuses on medieval Iceland, but I am especially fond of saga literature—my favorite of which being Njal’s Saga (the one I’ve worked the most with). Despite being a Historian-by-training, I prefer bringing various disciplines into conversation when I work: history, english, anthropology, linguistics, etc. If you’d like to know more about my academic side, I suggest taking a quick look at my Curriculum Vitae.

How can you help this humble Hall grow? Join Fjorn's Fellowship!

If you would like to contribute to the building of Fjorn's Hall, I would gladly welcome you among my Fellowship. Our world is often cruel to scholars, and even more so to those like myself who remain independent of a University. If you would like to see more scholarly information available to the public (and not just fellow academics with access to expensive journals), then consider joining our Fellowship. Your support would help me write more posts, enhance the overall quality of the website (especially by adding interactive materials), purchase new research materials, create new graphics and resources, and much much more. With your support, this Hall will become a gathering place worthy of all the wanderers who need a place to stay and learn.
Keep wandering
