Department of Icelandic Language and Literature at the University of Manitoba offers a field school in Icelandic language and literature.

The aim of the course is to explore Icelandic culture, highlighting the relation between nature, culture and environment. This field school program will offer instruction around the country in cooperation with the University of Iceland in Reykjavík and the University Centre of the Westfjords. Icelandic writers, poets and visual artists will also give readings and performances.

In 2010 a three-day event was organised in connection with the group´s stay in the Westfjords, World Light - World Song. The event featured a literary symposium, a concert, a hike in the breath-taking Westfjord nature as well as a sailing trip. For more information please follow this link.

The Icelandic Field School is expected to bring a group of students to the Westfjords in the summer of 2014.

Courses previously offered:
Contemporary Culture: Iceland here and now
Medival Culture: Sagas and Mythology
Conversational Icelandic

Our community

"The contents of our studies work great with the location! Smart, ad-venturous and like minded people come here from around the world. I love that the program is cross disciplinary and that we have a lot of one-to-one time with our instructors when they are here. I am more committed to UW than to my home university."
Ryan O┤Connell, Canada, CMM student 2010-2011
