The 2007 ACMRS Symposium will be “Men in Horns: The Fancied and Real World of the Vikings,” which is being cosponsored with the Scottsdale Public Library. This year's symposium will consist of three speakers discussing various aspects of Viking life and culture. Tracy Sands, from the University of Colorado at Boulder, and Maria-Claudia Tomany, of Minnesota State University Mankato, will each deliver separate lectures on Viking topics; and Ron Newcomer, of Arizona State University, will round out the symposium with his presentation of a video montage of Viking-oriented films. In addition to these speakers, we are in the process of confirming participation in the symposium by a number of local Scandinavian groups (these activities will be confirmed and announced at a later date). This event is also free and open to the public.
