Thursday, June 9, 2016

Olga Medvedeva, University of Bergen, is working on her PhD;

'Internationalisation of China in transnational perspective: prosopographical study on Norwegian employees of China’s Customs Service, 1890-1927.’

The ambition of my study is to show how the life stories of 279 representatives of a small nation like Norway can broaden the view on the customs history and reveal the complexity of the foreign presence in China during the late 19th – early 20th centuries.
