Quote from Prof. Halvor Eifring’s oral history interview
“Halvor Eifring: I think we are lucky to have here, as you see, first of all five professors and these two full-time lecturers and have in that sense a very good environment and the fact that we have people both on the language, philology and history part and people doing modern society and politics and that we talk together. I think it is a very good asset of this programme.
Julie Chen: So, you are the number one in Norway.
Halvor Eifring: In Norway, definitely. In Scandinavia we’d argue that we are at least the largest language-based programme of China studies.”
