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.

Tom of Finland: Out of the Shadows into The National Spotlight
Has Tom of Finland become the new Finn Family Moomin Troll? Drawings by the artist Tom of Finland helped empower gay men in the US and around the world, at the same time as homosexuality remained classified as criminal activity and an illness in Finland. Today Tom of Finland’s art has been taken out of the closet and elevated to the national pedestal - but not without the criticism of what looks a lot like exploitation by the nation-state.
