Leonora Onarheim Bergsjø has left The Faculty of Theology and her position as assistant scientific director for ATTR
Leonoras last day at ATTR was September 29. 2020
We wish Leonora good luck in her new endeavours.
New administrative coordinator
We welcome Christin-Helen Vasvik as the new administrative coordinator. She will be substituting for Leonora the upcoming semester.
She holds a master’s degree in religion and society studies from the Faculty of Theology. Her master thesis bases on the hypothesis "there are no atheists in the trenches" and asks, "how is meaning and mastery experienced during service in Afghanistan?”.
New scientific director
We are proud to announce that Terje Stordalen is the new scientific director of ATTR.
The former scientific director, Hugo Lundhaug,has recieved an ERC Consolidator Grant. The ERC-financed project is called "Storyworlds in Transition: Coptic Apocrypha in Changing Contexts in the Byzantine and Early Islamic Periods (APOCRYPHA)". It constitutes the first systematic study of Coptic apocrypha covering the entire timespan of Coptic literary production. He was thanked by the ATTR board in June for his excellent contribution to the research school. We congratulate him and look forward to continuing our collaboration.
