Recently, the Nordic countries have experienced a massive amount of interest from the surrounding world. The Scandinavian lifestyle is being praised in books and TV-programs, but what is Scandinavia and the Nordic countries? And why are they in the center of attention right now? During this course we will look at what formed the Nordic countries and why people think the Northerners are doing things the right way. Through lectures, discussions, and analyses we will shed light over the Nordic countries to gain a larger understanding of the area in a historical, political, cultural, and linguistic perspective.
