Presentation

I was trained in Religious Studies (Dr. art., 2007) at the University of Bergen, specializing in Jewish and Christian literatures of Late Antiquity. I have published widely on the apocalyptic text, 2 Baruch. I am currently writing a book on the transmission history of this text among Syriac Christians. My current research interests span manuscript studies, New Philology and textual scholarship, as well as media history. I have also published a book on religion and popular media (in Norwegian) and take interest in media literacy, the use of media materials in eductional practices, as well as the relationship between the media and the academe.
