In conversation with the turn towards intersectional and pluralistic approaches within the humanities and social sciences, several movements have surfaced in the study of the medieval North Atlantic raising new questions and bringing new insights to the field. Recent years have seen a push to expand the traditional geographical focus on Old Norse studies in Iceland and Norway to encompass East Norse studies, as well as a drive towards the focus on theoretical approaches to medieval Scandinavian textual and material sources. Manuscript studies have flourished with the emergence of new studies of textual production and transmission on both macro- and micro-levels. Similarly, studies on deviance and ontological borders, cultural and religious pluralism, the impact of the natural world, spaces and places as well as the materiality of texts and objects have made significant contributions.
