Authoritative texts are ubiquitous in both contemporary and historical societies, and their influence pervasive.
ATTR is a research school that offers PhD students in the Humanities, Law, and Theology high-level reflection on theories and research methods related to textual scholarship, as well as interdisciplinary feedback on ongoing dissertation work.
From October 19th -22nd ATTR held our first hybrid seminar.
We had both scholars and PhD students attending in real life and on Zoom.
The topics raised at the lectures ranged from translation in medieval Norway, authority and tradition when translating the Bible, translations of the Quran, to the bible in Arabic and much more.
"The feedback I get here gives me other perspectives on my research." (Henriette Tøssebro, University of Oslo)
ATTR aims to broaden the PhD candidates' scholarly perspectives, strengthen their networks, heighten the quality of their analyses, and help prepare for work inside and outside academia after the PhD degree has been obtained.
ATTR is a collaboration between the leading academic institutions in Norway and incorporates a broad international network of senior scholars and PhD students. It is funded by the Research Council of Norway.
