About this site

This site stores oral history interviews with senior China experts in the Nordic region. This is an ongoing project. We constantly update the site when a new oral history interview is completed.

This study is an expansion of the project on Comparative Epistemology of China Studies, which has been conducted for more than a decade under the leadership of Prof. Chih-yu Shih. It documents the oral history of intellectuals who have played a significant role in shaping the development of sinology and China studies in Nordic countries, composing mainly of Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Iceland, which have not yet been surveyed. This comparative epistemological approach allows us to understand how our research and knowledge of China are constructed in different countries. Most potential interviewees are at the senior stage of their career or life. Not only does this project have academic significance, it also seeks to preserve the heritage of the disciplines of sinology and China studies.

This project was sponsored by National Taiwan University, in cooperation with Chinese Academy of Social Sciences from 2016-2018. Julie Yu-Wen Chen, Professor of Chinese Studies at the University of Helsinki conducted most of the interviews, with the assistance of Toivo Qiu and Riina Pesonen. From 2018 on, Dusica Ristivojevic, Kone Foundation Bold Initiatives Senior Researcher has contributed further oral history interviews.


Huomisen Humanisti campaign, organized by Humanisticum, the students organization of the Faculty of Arts has posted our Chinese studies on Instagram! LIKE it if you use instagram please 🙂
