Upcoming events:

Kick-off event 27th of May 2021. The main event consists of two roundtable webinars on the concepts of canonization and codification. Theme: Debating the use and usefulness of the concepts of "canonization" and "codification". There is also planned a physical event the week before for Norwegian participants only, due to the assumed lack of travel possibilities for international scholars. More information will be annouced in late April.
