Research seminars – The Norwegian Institute of Philology (PHI)

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.

Seminars are included in programs where students are awarded between 30 and 60 ECTS credits in each program, based on a written assignment (essay/term paper).

The Oslo Graeco-Arabic seminar (established in 2008) continues this semester with Hunayn b. Ishaq's Arabic translation of Galen's work The Best Doctor is Also a Philosopher (Greek: Ὅτι ὁ ἄριστος ἰατρός καί φιλόσοφος; Arabic: مقالة جالينوس في أنّه يجب أن يكون الطبيب الفاضل فيلسوفًا).
