Islands of Place and Space (2022)


This festschrift honours the achievements of Dr Arne Kruse, who retired from the University of Edinburgh after an accomplished scholarly career of over four decades as a researcher and educator. In celebrating his academic body of work, this volume brings together fifteen contributions from Arne’s colleagues and friends, investigating and interweaving various aspects of the history, historical linguistics, toponymy, and literature of Scotland, Scandinavia, and beyond. Wide-ranging in their geographical, chronological, and interdisciplinary scope, these collective contributions are a fitting tribute to the breadth, depth, and versatility of Arne’s own research – covering land and sea, connecting islands of place and space.
