This is a lecture given by Dr. Zhang Yihe (章诒和) at the Oslo University, 12.october, 2010, on the subject of censorship in China. The lecture is in Chinese with Norwegian translation by professor Halvor Eifring. The lecture is recorded with the help of my iphone.
On Zhang Yihe: She is a controversial figure in the Chinese litterary world, as several of her books are banned in the Mainland China. One of them is “The Past is not like smoke” (往事并不如烟) which is about Mao’s anti-rightist campaign. Zhang took the unusual step of suing the authorities for constitutional violations. She has since been the focus of an intense political debate about censorship in China. She worked closely with Nobel prize winner Liu Xiaobo before he was imprisoned.
