From the early 1970s onwards she has had an outstandingly vital role in the teaching and in other academic activities at the University of Oslo. She has contributed substantially over the years in the field of sociolinguistics, as well as in cultural and translation studies. Gunvor has been a major contributor to the development of a Norwegian expertise on issues related to the languages, peoples and societies of the Middle East and North Africa, and has played an active role in the Norwegian public sphere.
Dedicated to a philological ethos, Gunvor has intervened both academically and critically in debates about historical and contemporary issues, firmly grounding her perspectives and contributions in reflections on language. Hence our choice of title for this anthology: Philologists in the World. In 21 articles, some by young scholars and others by older colleagues and well established international scholars in Arabic and Middle Eastern Studies, a wide array of topics and themes is presented, reflected in the tripartite organization of: Language, Culture and Society.
We hereby invite you to subscribe to the Festschrift and have your name included in the Tabula Gratulatoria. The book will be shipped after Gunvor has received it early December. Subscribe now and no later than October 10.
