The 2021/2022 project in this category is:

Exploring the Archaeological Migration Narrative: The Introduction of Farming and Animal Husbandry in Southern Norway

  • Led by Professors Martin Furholt (UiO) and Daniela Hofmann (UiB).

The project aims to create an interdisciplinary dialogue to bring the dominant archaeological and archaeogenetic migration narrative up to date with the archaeological and anthropological discourse on human mobilities, identities and social change and to further explore its implications for our understanding of human movements in prehistory.


As the pandemic caused the Centre to shut down during the spring semester, CAS has extended the timeframe for the 2020/2021 project:

Books Known Only by Title: Exploring the Gendered Structures of First Millennium Imagined Libraries

  • Led by Professors Marianne Bjelland Kartzow (UiO) and Liv Ingeborg Lied (MF).

This research project aims at mapping the occurrences of books known only by title and associated with female figures from the broadly conceived, and evolving, biblical narrative  from Qumran to the Qur'an.
