The Department of Scandinavian promotes interest in the culture and history of the Nordic region by regularly sponsoring lectures by visiting academic colleagues, discussions with Nordic authors, presentations by current Visiting Scholars and Visiting Student Researchers, dissertation research workshops, and film screenings.
