Scandinavian 30 is a series of free, thirty-minute talks by UW Scandinavian Studies faculty held on the second Thursday of each month at the Nordic Museum. Grab a drink at Café Freya and find out what you really need to know to understand Scandinavia!
The Scandinavian Studies Department and the Nordic Museum have been partners since the museum’s founding in 1980. The Scandinavian 30 series renews this partnership bringing together Museum staff, audiences and UW students and faculty to share in study of the Nordics.
Department Chair Andrew Nestingen says, “We are strong partners with the Nordic Museum, and we share a common goal of spreading ideas about the Nordic world. Scandinavian 30 is going to be an evening to put in your calendar for a lively talk, old and new friends, and a fun atmosphere. It’s going to be great!”
Talks during the next months will be on the Vikings, trolls, Scandinavian sin, Nordic cinema, noir, and innovation.
All lectures start at 7pm, the second Thursday of the month. Come early and have a bite or a drink at Freya, the museum's cafe. The talks will last no more than 30 minutes – Scandinavian 30. After, chat with the professors over a drink at Freya.
