As part of my new position, I need to teach a one-month class during January on some geological topic. I’ve been considering a number of options, but keep coming back to the idea of the geology of Iceland throughout time. Since we’re talking about liberal arts students at a Swedish Lutheran college that has a strong Scandinavian studies program, I would also like to integrate at least a week on Icelandic culture and how it was affected by the geology. There are a number of resources out there, but there are limits to how much my students will be able to read in the course of a month. Anyone have favorites about either Icelandic culture or geology?
