Alumna of the Month: Liv Ingeborg Lied
Liv Ingeborg Lied, professor at MF Norwegian School of Theology, Religion and Society (MF), served as project leader at CAS back in 2020/2021 together with professor Marianne Bjelland Kartzow. Their project, 'Books Known Only by Title: Exploring the Gendered Structures of First Millennium Imagined Libraries', delved into the largely unexplored category of "books known only by the title" in texts from the first millennium, focusing specifically on postulated books associated with female figures from the biblical narrative.
Meet the Project: Representation theory – Combinatorial aspects and applications
Steffen Oppermann and Aslak Buan, both professors at the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), are co-leading the CAS-project “Representation theory – Combinatorial aspects and applications” this year. Their project is about representation theory, which studies nonlinear algebraic structures by representing their elements as linear transformations of vector spaces.
