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.

Money can’t buy you HYGGE
HYGGE - No other Scandinavian topic has drawn more attention over the last decade. Hundreds of books and articles have been written to explain the quaint combination of coziness, candles, woolen socks and hot chocolate to the American audience. But there is more to HYGGE than meets the eye. This talk looks beyond the tranquil representation of HYGGE outside of Denmark to discuss the real pros and cons of this Danish and international sensation.
