A Doctoral Research Fellowship (SKO 1017) in Scandinavian literature is available at the Department of Linguistics and Scandinavian Studies (ILN), University of Oslo. ILN hosts two research sections in this field, the Scandinavian literature section and the Centre for Ibsen Studies.
The Scandinavian literature section has distinguished itself internationally for its research on literary criticism, history of the book, ecocriticism, narratology, drama, short stories and poetry. Focus areas include central Nordic authors, different literary periods and topics of particular relevance for contemporary society. In addition, the section has an interdisciplinary orientation, with a focus on environmental humanities, life sciences, book history and digital humanities.
The Centre for Ibsen Studies is a national and international hub for research, documentation and teaching about Henrik Ibsen. The Centre has developed several open-access digital resources, and aims to become an international flagship within this area. Among these resources, the electronic edition of Henrik Ibsen’s Writings and the relational event-based database IbsenStage have had a ground-breaking effect on recent Ibsen research. In addition, the Centre has significant expertise in various approaches to reception studies and the history of the book.
The Scandinavian literature section and the Centre for Ibsen Studies invite qualified applicants to submit a project description. It is preferred that projects are connected to one or more of the following research areas:
- Book history and/or reception studies
- Literature and media / intermediality / interart studies
- Life sciences / narrative medicine
- Digital humanities
