520    This interdisciplinary volume seeks to examine and explore
       the various issues surrounding image construction, 
       identity making and representations of the North, as well 
       as the interconnectedness between those issues. The aim is
       to elucidate the multiple aspects of the idea of the North,
       both as a mythological space and a discursive system 
       created and shaped by cultures outside the North as well 
       as from within.The objective of the research project 
       Iceland and Images of the North is to elucidate several 
       aspects of images of the North and to explore their 
       functions in the present, focusing especially on Iceland. 
       What effect have Iceland and its people had on images of 
       the North, and how do those images influence the 
       Icelanders and other nations? The project will be a 
       cooperative, interdisciplinary undertaking by researchers 
       in the humanities and social sciences
