Centre for Nordic and Old English Studies (CBNS)
In the Middle Ages, England, Scandinavia, and the territories of the Northern Atlantic were connected by a tight mesh of political, economic, cultural, and linguistic bonds. The researchers working at the Centre for Nordic and Old English Studies of the University of Silesia (CBNS) study medieval societies of these regions by focusing on their history, culture, and literature. The research at the CBNS focuses mainly on political and social changes, the ideology of power, and on Old Norse and Old English literature. Studying the history and culture of medieval England, Scandinavia, and the territories of the Northern Atlantic contributes to a better understanding of the European Middle Ages.
