This course is called “Scandinavian Fantasy Worlds: Old Norse Sagas and Skyrim” and is being offered at Rice University in Houston, Texas. The course has students read translated versions of Old Norse and Old Icelandic Sagas as they play through specific quests in Skyrim. They then examine how medieval Scandinavian culture influenced Skyrim, and then look at what else in our lives might have been influenced by the same things. And it’s a pretty good strategy to teach the students this stuff, seeing as how they love Skyrim or just video games in general.
