University of Oslo, Sept 15–17, 2014

In September 2014 scholars from seven countries met at the University of Oslo in order to explore textual, linguistic and narrative aspects of Dungan folk literature, as well as to discuss the wider cultural significance of these texts. While conferences and workshops on Dungan studies have been held in Central Asia, China, and Japan for a number of years, this conference in Oslo is probably the first such conference to have taken place in the West, and is certainly quite special in the history of the university.
