In August, Build a Ladder to the Stars, a report on the strategic plan of the University of Oslo was published. I was privileged to be a member of the stellar committee who wrote it, the so-called Strategic Advisory Board (SAB). The SAB was chaired by Esko Aho, former prime minister of Finland; the other members were Peter Agre (Johns Hopkins, 2003 Nobel Prize in Chemistry); Shaheen Sardar Ali (Warwick; Law/UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention; Erwin Neher (Göttingen, 1991 Nobel Prize in Medicine); Frans van Vught (Rector Emeritus of the University of Twente, High level EU education advisor). For an overview of the reception of the report, in English, see this article by Jan Petter Myklebust in University World News.
Erica Wagner wrote a great article in The New Statesman on Ibsen’s life and work, to celebrate the Ibsen festival at the Barbican in London, and the publication of the new translations. Here is a pdf of the same article: Erica Wagner – New Statesman.
