  • Many Russians hoped that Hitler would free them from Stalin Dec. 4, 2018 1:08 PM

    To put it briefly: Ethnic Russians were much less loyal to the Soviet regime in their encounters with the German occupiers than historians have believed up to now. This is the story told by UiO researcher Johannes Due Enstad, who has recently published a book about the German occupation of Northwest Russia during World War 2.

  • 640ibsen Translators to eliminate common misunderstandings of Ibsen: Pass me the whistle or “fløyten” – and not the cream or “fløten”! Nov. 26, 2018 12:58 PM

    Ibsen’s plays have been translated innumerable times and performed on stages worldwide. However, many of these translations are based on other translations, most frequently from English. A group of translators have therefore studied Ibsen’s original plays and translated them directly from Norwegian to eight different languages, under the project entitled “Ibsen in Translation” at the Centre for Ibsen Studies.
