La représentation du Nord dans Vikings. Entre exploration, imaginaire et altérité

Abstract : Using the concept of borealism, this article examines the multiple representations of the North found in the TV show Vikings. The TV show is in the discursive continuity of an imaginary of the North to which it contributes to. In Vikings, the North is homogeneous and serves as a place of evocation. It is intrinsically linked to the idea of exploration and stands in opposition to other medieval kingdoms. The article reveals an alterity of the North which is, among others, conveyed by the role of women and the mystical aesthetics of the show. The article thus provides an analysis of a contemporary reception of the Nordic imaginary and sheds light to the diversity of its discourses.
