Description

Short, snappy, entertaining: Scandinavian 30 is a series of free, thirty-minute talks by UW Scandinavian Studies faculty the second Thursday of every month at 7:00PM at the Nordic Museum. The talks will tell you what you really need to know about Scandinavia to understand it.

UW Scandinavian Professors share their insight and cutting-edge ideas in Academia in an informal setting at the Nordic Museum. Drinks available for purchase in the bar.

Viking Y2K: Ragnarök, Doomsday, and the End of the World (as We Know It)
What can our medieval sources for Ragnarök tell us about what people in Scandinavia in the Viking Age thought about the end of the world? How did their understanding of the future affect their actions in their present? Was Old Norse religion really just a Doomsday cult?
