Niko Shefer

Being a Student and a


Niko Shefer has been a teacher and a student of English Literature

for many years over his career. After he first discovered William

Shakespeare in grade school in Oslo, Shefer was hooked on the

written word, poetry, and English Literature. He continued his

passionate study of the greatest British authors through his

undergraduate years and after earning his Bachelor’s degree in

English, he left his native country, Norway to continue his study of

English Literature in the United States. There he found many other

students and teachers as passionate about the great English authors

as he was. He learned as much from his peers as the professors

while at New York University earning his Master’s degree there.

Niko Shefer, as a professor now at the University of Oslo back in

his home country of Norway, learns from his students and

colleagues. He sees his role as both a student and a teacher in this

context, teaching others as much as he learns from others to form

a dialogue and discussion about the great English writers so that

everyone involved can learn a little about the place that these

writers came from to help us learn a little bit more about our

current situation and culture. Shefer believes that the authors he

has studied throughout his career still have things to say about

the current state of literature and modern British and European


Niko Shefer found in other places in the world where he has back in

studied English Literature that his favorite authors he has spent

years studying still have words that ring true. He also found many

people who think like him. Shefer has found that the creative

power in the stories that the great English writers can still bring

people together and foster creative discussions and works by his

students. Shefer is still learning from his counterparts in the

classroom every day. He considers his job a privilege to teach and

learn from his students at the University of Oslo and sees his role

as both student and teacher. Student of the words and works of

the many great authors that came before him, and a teacher of

their lessons to the next generation of academics.

Shefer is still learning from the words of Shelley, Chaucer, and

Dickens. He is also learning from the analysis and work of his

students, who bring forth new insights and discussions every day that

inform the words of the great authors in his mind. He has created

many new opportunities for people new to the studies of English

Literature. He is happy to give back to his community with good

works and donations to worthy causes throughout Oslo, where he has

lived for the past ten years.
