PhD position summary/title: Two Doctoral Research Fellowships in Petroculture Studies – TOIL

Two Doctoral Research Fellowships (SKO 1017) in Petroculture Studies are available at the Department of Linguistics and Scandinavian Studies, University of Oslo. The positions are part of a Research Council of Norway-funded project, Translatability of Oil: Critical Petro-Aesthetics at Work (TOIL), led by Professor Sissel Furuseth. TOIL investigates how petroleum oil has been described and interpreted through fiction, didactic texts, media, and religious practice in the last century. With particular emphasis on developments in Norway after 1970, the project will discuss the extent to which oil’s aesthetics may have contributed to preventing the transition to alternative forms of energy. The project’s theoretical starting point is that a shift from fossil to green energy requires a combination of different translation skills, which makes it possible to communicate across ideological, professional, linguistic, and generational dividing lines. By comparing different energy cultures, where Norwegian oil culture forms the center of the investigation, TOIL will contribute to nuance the hitherto North America dominated research literature within Petroculture Studies.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Research Fellow in the subject area of Ethics and Sustainability

We live in times of climate crisis, ecological degradation and global injustice. It is widely acknowledged that these predicaments require transformations of societal structures and practices, making education a crucial element. A major reference is United Nations´ Transforming our world: The 2030 Agenda for sustainable development, with sustainable development goal 4 addressing education, currently expressed both in global education policy and the recent Norwegian curriculum renewal (LK20/LK20S). Sustainability education is distinguished by a distinct ethical dimension. While ethics education (also referred to as moral education, values education and character education) traditionally has aimed at fostering individual responsibility for other human beings within stable nation states, the ethical concerns here extend time and place, addressing global justice, the well-being of future generations and ecosystems, including the myriad of species and life forms.

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral Research Fellowship in Twentieth-century Norwegian liteature

The PhD fellow will take part in the Norwegian Research Council-funded project “Made Abroad: Producing Norwegian World Literature in a Time of Rupture, 1900-1950” (MAP), led by Aina Nøding at the National Library of Norway. The project team includes Giuliano D’Amico at the Centre for Ibsen Studies. MAP uncovers the paths of Norwegian literature towards a world readership during the first dramatic half of the twentieth century. In this period, Norwegian authors faced a series of ruptures and challenging circumstances: two world wars following new forms of nationalism, changes to traditional cultural, religious, and linguistic hegemonies, as well as international copyright laws, the introduction of global mass media, and new methods of book production and distribution. Significantly rewriting Norwegian literary history, MAP also challenges our view of centre-periphery dynamics of literary exchange across borders, forging a highly innovative approach combining reception and translation studies, sociology of literature, book and cultural history.

About The University of Oslo, Norway – Official Website

The University of Oslo, until 1939 named the Royal Frederick University is the oldest university in Norway, located in the Norwegian capital of Oslo. Until 1 January 2016 it was the largest Norwegian institution of higher education in terms of size, now surpassed only by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. The Academic Ranking of World Universities has ranked it the 58th best university in the world and the third best in the Nordic countries. In 2015, the Times Higher Education World University Rankings ranked it the 135th best university in the world and the seventh best in the Nordics. While in its 2016, Top 200 Rankings of European universities, the Times Higher Education listed the University of Oslo at 63rd, making it the highest ranked Norwegian university.

The university has approximately 27,700 students and employs around 6,000 people. Its faculties include (Lutheran) theology (with the Lutheran Church of Norway having been Norway’s state church since 1536), law, medicine, humanities, mathematics, natural sciences, social sciences, dentistry, and education. The university’s original neoclassical campus is located in the centre of Oslo; it is currently occupied by the Faculty of Law. Most of the university’s other faculties are located at the newer Blindern campus in the suburban West End. The Faculty of Medicine is split between several university hospitals in the Oslo area. The university also includes some formally independent, affiliated institutes such as the Centre for International Climate and Environmental Research (CICERO), NKVTS and the Frisch Centre.

The university was founded in 1811 and was modeled after the University of Copenhagen and the recently established University of Berlin. It was originally named for King Frederick VI of Denmark and Norway, and received its current name in 1939. The university is informally also known as Universitetet (“the university”), having been the only university in Norway, until 1946 and was commonly termed “The Royal Frederick’s” (Det Kgl. Frederiks), before the name change.

The Nobel Peace Prize was awarded in the university’s Atrium, from 1947 to 1989 and will be so again in 2020, making it the only university in the world to be involved in awarding a Nobel Prize. Since 2003, the Abel Prize is awarded in the Atrium. Five researchers affiliated with the university have been Nobel laureates.
