PHI SEMINARS

The Norwegian Institute of Philology organises weekly philological research seminars where we read ancient and classical texts in a number of languages. Please write to seminar@philology.no if you have questions or if you are interested in participating.
 
The time and place of each weekly seminar is given in the calendar summary to the right and in the full calendar below.
Seminars usually begin in early February and early September. The dates of the first reading are found in the calendar below (or will be posted in due time).  
Student participation in these seminars can in most cases be awarded with ECTS credits ("studiepoeng"), based on active participation in the seminar and on submitting a term paper. Students who participate will typically have prior knowledge of the language(s) and cultural tradition(s) in question, equivalent to a minimum of one academic year of instruction.
