Bio

Professor Dr. Zhang Xihua is a highly respected, influential and successful scholar whose thinking and efficient realization of planning has supported and contributed substantially to hundreds of students from China and Denmark in mutual cultural understanding. Her contribution to Cross-Cultural research has resulted in the formation of a Center for Denmark Studies, now recognized by the Chinese Ministry of Education as a National Center for China. The center has since 2015 arranged conferences on topics of shared interest for Danish and Chinese scholars as a mutual inspiration in order to improve cross-cultural understanding and promote social and academic thinking. These achievements are highly appreciated as they enhance academic understanding between China and Denmark (the Western World) and will advance cross-cultural understanding to the benefit of both Danish and Chinese scholars.
