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.

Give us a heads up about relevant news or things of note we can share through the network, as for example publications, seminars and conferences, job positions or other relevant news.
Resonans shares news about publications and other relevant information. It is not a publisher in its own right. Authors, publications, or institutions mentioned do not necessarily have a relationship with the network.
