Maximillian Jesiolowski

PhD Student 


As an undergraduate, I studied archaeology, ancient history, music composition and music theory in Melbourne, Australia before doing a master’s in Viking and Medieval Norse Studies at the University of Iceland. My thesis focused on the relationship between human emotions/identity and the natural environment in medieval Icelandic literature and was part of the University of Iceland’s Emotion and the Medieval Self in Northern Europe research project (

I am now pursuing a PhD with the University of Luxembourg, in a project that will combine the study of the Ferraris Maps (1771-1777) of the Austrian Netherlands with digital interactive techniques to understand the nature of environment and land use in medieval and early modern Luxembourg.


Research projects:
