A Nordic Network for Theology, Philosophy and Politics
Resonans is an online academic network that facilitates conversation, research, and exchange of information among Nordic academics working in the intersection between theology, politics and philosophy.
Resonans publishes a regular newsletter about new articles, events, and things of note from Nordic academics.
Each semester, Resonans will host an online seminar. Everybody is welcome to join us.
Academics in Oslo are hosting a monthly-ish reading group in political theology on Zoom. You are welcome to join the email list.
