The Nordic-Baltic Section is excited to award the Boreal Prize to Amber J. Rose, PhD candidate at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. This prize is given to recognize outstanding article-length student essays on a folklore topic having to do with Northern Europe and/or the diasporas. Ms. Rose's work is highly deserving of such recognition and her paper, “Thinking with Wolves on the Icelandic Frontier,” was chosen for its deftness in examining the intersections of folklore, history, and literature while commenting on the contemporary environmental issues that face us today. This honor includes a $150 award and a year’s subscription to Arv, the Nordic Yearbook of Folklore.
